She responded, as she always did, with style, grace and encouragement. Anyone who was fortunate enough to enter her circle of light will remember her delicious sense of humor and her luminous talent, as well as her dedication to her profession and to her friends. Marin’s courage and grace will continue to inspire everyone who knew her as well as her countless fans and generations of theater professionals. She was a true original and we will miss her.
