Exeunt Eugenia Gingold

Eugenia Gingold passed away on December 22, 2010, at age 94.  From her Miami Herald obituary:
In the 1980s, she directed and acted in plays presented by theater pioneer Ruth Foreman. Joseph Adler, the award-winning artistic director at GableStage in Coral Gables, directed Gingold in Foreman's productions of Social Security and Crossing Delancey.
In the late 1980s, Gingold shifted to theater criticism, writing reviews, becoming a voter in the region's Carbonell Awards program and joining the American Theater Critics Association.

Bunny Yeager, publisher of the defunct Florida Stage and Screen, said of Gingold: ``I was so lucky to have her write for my little newspaper . . . She was so gifted. And classy.''
Rest in peace, Genie, and thanks for all your support; the theatre scene will not be the same without you.
