Remembering Jan Maxwell

Jan Maxwell: November 20, 1956 - February 11, 2018

I, like many of you, was stunned and saddened to learn of Jan Maxwell's passing yesterday.  I had the honor of seeing her perform in two shows - Lend Me a Tenor and Follies. Her "The Story of Lucy and Jessie" in the latter was particularly memorable.  Both remarkable, tour de force performances are etched in my mind; she was just that kind of performer.  Those shows were star vehicles which were packed with names more recognizable to the general public than hers, but at the end of both, you could hear people talking about her with the awe of first discovery. Such is the life of a true stage star these days, I suppose.

Jan Maxwell raised the level of every production she was in. She will be missed.
