Deaths

Marin Mazzie

NEW YORK (AP) — Actress and soprano Marin Mazzie, a three-time Tony Award nominee known for powerhouse Broadway performances in “Ragtime,” “Passion” and “Kiss Me, Kate,” has died following a three-year battle with ovarian cancer. She was 57.

Mazzie died Thursday at her Manhattan home surrounded by close friends and family.

Mazzie’s broad career went from screwball comedy — in “Kiss Me, Kate” and “Monty Python’s Spamalot” on Broadway and the West End — to riveting, dysfunctional moms in “Next to Normal” and “Carrie.”
