Stephen J. Albert, 1951-2017

We are deeply saddened to share the news that Steve Albert, Court Theatre’s Executive Director, our friend and partner, passed away peacefully on December 29, surrounded by his family. The cause of death was complications from surgery after a hard fought battle with a long term illness.

From Court’s Artistic Director Charles Newell:

“For many years, we at Court had an idea and a plan of where we might go. But Steve was the one who took us there. He believed in dreaming big and then figuring out how you could get even partially there. He also became a dear, close friend and I am the better man for that.”

He will be deeply missed.

A memorial will be held at Court Theatre in late January.  Details to follow.
