Sadly, we have to report that founding board member and spiritual guide to the company Marlene Clary passed away this morning after a long illness. Marlene was a teacher, director, actor, choirmistress, wife, mother, and lover of art and theater.
It's not easy to distill into a single post what she meant to this company, and to its members, so I wont insult her memory and even try, not just yet. She will be missed.
A wake will be held on Saturday, December 26 at Duffy's funeral home (9th Street, just east of 4th Avenue in Park Slope) from 12pm to 3pm and from 5pm to 7pm. A funeral service will be held on Monday, December 28 at 4pm at Old First Church (7th Avenue and President Street in Park Slope), followed by a reception at the church.
