Memorial to Celebrate the Life of Hartt Faculty Member Kevin Gray
A Memorial Celebration in honor of the late Kevin Gray, associate professor of theatre in The Hartt School and a renowned Broadway performer, will be held on Monday, May 13, at 2 p.m. at The Majestic Theater, home of Phantom of the Opera, 44th Street and 8th Avenue in New York City.
Gray, a beloved member of the University community and the theatre world, passed away in February at the age of 55. Among his many high-profile roles, Gray starred in Phantom of the Opera on Broadway and on the U.S. national tour
All friends, colleagues, and current and former students are welcome to join in the celebration of Gray's life on May 13. No tickets or admission; just come.
You may wish to arrive early; there will be videos, photos, and other items in the lobby area. Many of Gray's theatre friends – including Charles Randolph-Wright, director of Motown: The Musical, and a former classmate at Duke University – are helping to organize the tribute.
