The Final Curtain Call (updated)

The office was abuzz with it when I walked in this morning; Bruce Adler has passed.
The news of his fight with cancer only came out yesterday in Christine Dolen's blog; her story about Bruce in hospice care has already been amended. I'm not going to attempt to repeat her work; go read it.
Bruce leaves behind his wife, director Amy London, and a son, Jacob Hayden. Adler has only been a father for a year.

I join Christine in asking everyone to send good thoughts to Amy, Jacob, and the rest of Bruce Adler's family and friends.

This letter was sent to the patrons of The New Vista Theatre Company, where Bruce recently appeared in I'm Not Rappapport!, and was slated to star in THE PRODUCERS:
