So shocking!
This is devastating news. My condolences and respect to her friends and family. A legend gone far too soon.
Thanks for the clarification regarding Mazzie. Wishing her a speedy recovery!
Heartbreaking. She was peerless.
Her bag is full. Our hearts are just as full.This is such a loss for the entire theater community. I don’t think the size of the loss has sunken in yet. Peace and condolences to her family.
We were all just discussing her as a great Dolly replacement. This is very sudden and sad. Rest in peace Jan, xo
I am devastated.
I was just telling a friend a few months ago how much I missed seeing her onstage. I literally gasped when I saw this headline.I am incredibly thankful to have seen her in "Coram Boy," "Lend Me A Tenor," and "Follies".

Such sad news. She was such a talent and I loved her performance in Follies. Rest in peace.
Jan Maxwell gave one of those unforgettable performances (for me, anyway) as Phyllis in FOLLIES in 2011. (Her colleague, Danny Burstein, did the same thing as Buddy.) This news hits me like a ton of bricks. Despite her announced retirement, I had hoped for a grand return. She was a true creature of the stage, and we were lucky to have her. I send my condolences to her colleagues, her loved ones, and her family. She will live on in the memories of the many very lucky theatregoers who saw her for a long time to come. John Verderber
Terrible news indeed...Jan Maxwell was an unforgettable Phyllis and deserved all the praise that was showered upon her. A great performer in her own right and a terrible shame that she left us too soon. May she rest in peace with the angels.
She was in the first Broadway show I ever saw, The Sound of Music. I also got to see her in everything she did on Broadway since Chitty Bang Bang, which included all five of her tony nominated performances as well as some off-broadway plays. I've gotten to be in some pretty exciting rooms with some pretty exciting people through my job and she was one of the very few who never let her success get to her head and treated the intern (ME) the same way she did Mr. Sondheim. This was my favorite as a teenager. Worth watching the whole thing. https://youtu.be/-GqwYG92tIE
