Albert Marre.

* Tony-winning Broadway director Albert Marre, 87, died in September. Marre won early success as the director of Kismet in 1953, going on to work on Broadway for more than 50 years. He remains most lauded for his direction for Man of La Mancha, for which he won his Tony in 1966, and continued to stay close to the show, directing three of its four Broadway revivals over the years. Prior to his 1950 Broadway debut (as an actor and associate director for the comedy The Relapse), Marre abandoned his Harvard University law degree to co-found the Brattle Theatre Company in Cambridge, Mass., one of the country's first classical repertory theatres.
