Stu, our class vice president, died peacefully April 30, 2021, at his Princeton home.
He graduated from the Wooster School in Danbury, Conn., and served two years in the Navy. A member of Tower, he was active in Theatre Intime, worked for WPRU, and majored in English.
He taught briefly before joining the Lea & Perrins Worcestershire sauce distribution business his family had owned for four generations. He soon became vice president of sales.
His love of theater never wavered, and by 1970 he had left Worcestershire sauce for Broadway. Teaming with Angela Landsbury’s brother Edgar, he produced successful revivals of Waiting for Godot, and then the award-winning musical Godspell.
A two-decade career as a theater critic followed. He covered more than 50 New Jersey theaters, garnering countless awards for his reviews.
His many years as a P-rade marshal culminated as a grand marshal. In 1980 he was the first to carry the Frank T. Gorman ceremonial mace he had commissioned to honor a friend. His 2012 induction into the Society of the Claw recognized his contributions to Princeton.
His wife, “Petie,” whom he met at a student production at Miss Fine’s School and married in 1951, died in 2016. Stu is survived by children Stuart, Jane ’80, and Carol.
