Our thanks to Gina Stahlnecker for providing this remembrance.
Maggie DaVora, longtime HB student of Austin Pendleton, Ed Morehouse and Martha Bernard succumbed to Multiple Myeloma Saturday, November 15. Maggie put up a fierce battle over an almost three year period against the illness. She even appeared in the role of Miss Brown in Look Homeward, Angel directed by Austin Pendleton, wearing a surgical mask during her treatment. A beautiful performance and testament to her courage, optimism and love of theatre and acting.
Maggie was a friend to all who knew her. Red hair bouncing in the breeze, a wide and beautiful smile and a personality that was always up, happy and giving to her friends and colleagues. All qualities that she kept in clear evidence even into the days just before her passing. May the gods of theatre and acting look over Maggie as she enters a new place of love and eternal happiness—that redhead and smiling face will greet us again one day, at an audition for the next play being produced up there!
