Marin Mazzie Dies: Broadway Star Of ‘Passion’, ‘Ragtime’ Was 57

Mazzie was nominated for her roles in Ragtime, Passion, and Kiss Me, Kate, and also starred in a wide range of productions including Spamalot, Next to Normal, and Bullets Over Broadway.

Broadway star Marin Mazzie has sadly passed away at the age of 57 after battling ovarian cancer.

Three-time Tony Award nominee Marin Mazzie has been heard in numerous country's major symphony halls, cabaret and concert venues, and has been seen starring in some of the most memorable musicals on the Broadway stage and in London's West End. "We join with her husband, Broadway's Jason Danieley, her friends and family, and all her fans to mourn her untimely passing", The Tony Awards tweeted Thursday.

The actress and soprano was born and raised in Rockford, Ill., and attended Western Michigan University in Kalamazoo to study theater.

Mazzie made her Broadway debut in 1985 in the Huckleberry Finn musical Big River. While previously appearing in an Off-Broadway production of Trojan Women: A Love Story, she met and fell in love with fellow actor Jason Danieley.

Mazzie also made notable guest appearances on television series such as Without a Trace, Still Standing, Nurse Jackie, The Big C, and Smash.

As her offstage romance was blooming, her onstage pairing with Mitchell continued in 2002 when she took over the role of Aldonza/Dulcinea in Man of La Mancha.

"The lights of Broadway all shine a little dimmer tonight", wrote Daniel Dae Kim, her co-star in 2016's The King and I.

In addition to her Broadway work, Mazzie was a popular concert singer, performing at venues such as Carnegie Hall and the Hollywood Bowl, and with the Boston Pops. She also performed as a Broadway replacement in Into the Woods. They later released an album of these songs, Opposite You, on the P.S. Classics label.

Mazzie was inducted into New York's Theater Hall of Fame previous year.
