Artistic Director Anna D. Shapiro shared, "Mariann was our girl. Funny, strong, unbelievably hard working, with a quick smile that belied a complex and beautiful interior life, she was at the center of who this company is and has always been. It is impossible to imagine our theater - or this astonishingly cruel world - without her. We are devastated."
