Remembering

Playbill.com has a stunningly comprehensive list of theatrical folks who passed away in 2005. Plenty of familiar names (I was surprised that some major publications failed to mention the deaths of Arthur Miller and August Wilson in their year-end coverage). But the list is worth looking at for the less familiar ones. I didn't know Peter Zeisler, longtime leader of Theatre Communications Group, had passed away.
