Seattle Times theater critic Misha Berson writes:
A tribute to the late theater artist and administrator Jerry Manning will be held at 6:30 p.m., Monday, June 2, at the Seattle Repertory Theatre, the Rep has announced on its website.
Mr. Manning, the theater’s artistic director since 2010 and a Rep staffer since 2001, had been a respected casting director, stage director and theater administrator on the East Coast as well as in Seattle. He died on April 30, due to complications from heart surgery. A full obituary was published in The Seattle Times earlier this month.
The memorial event is open to the public. Mr. Manning’s family requests that donations be made in Manning’s memory to the Seattle Rep. More information: www.seattlerep.org or 206-443-2210.
