Remembrances from the Chicago theater family:
“He was a brilliant eccentric man, a gifted actor and a true friend with a heart of gold. The world will not be the same without him.”
“One of the most talented and thought provoking artists I know…”
“The theatre world has lost one of its brightest stars.”
