    The first passing is actor Mel Winkler, who appeared in Broadway productions such as The Great White Hope and Joe Turner’s Come And Gone. https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/mel-winkler-actor-devil-a-blue-dress-doc-hollywood-dies-at-78-1298033

    By the time the Tony Awards resume, I wonder how they’ll end up handling their In Memoriam segment for the next telecast. Will it consist of people who passed away dating back to now or June 2019?

    I would have to assume back to June 2019, otherwise it would be seen as insensitive.

    Plus, I think it would be so rude if they did not acknowledge the passings of legends like Martin Charnin, Hal Prince, Diahann Carroll, Jerry Herman, Zoe Caldwell, Mart Crowley, Terrence McNally, Brian Dennehy, Jerry Stiller, Larry Kramer, etc.

    Actor Ian Holm has died at the age of 88.
    https://www.theguardian.com/film/2020/jun/19/ian-holm-dies-alien-chariots-of-fire-bilbo-baggins

    While he was best known for his roles on the big screen such as Ash in 1979’s Alien, Sam Mussabini in 1981’s Chariots of Fire (which earned him an Oscar nomination), Mr. Kurtzmann in 1985’s Brazil, and Bilbo Baggins in The Lord of the Rings trilogy, he appeared on Broadway once back in 1967 as Lenny in the original production of Harold Pinter’s The Homecoming. He even won a Tony Award for his performance, which just so happened to have been the first award of the night presented on the very first ceremony that was broadcast on national television. In his acceptance speech, he said “Ladies and gentlemen, this means that I can take home to England with me two very valuable objects from the United States: One brand new all American son, Barnaby, born February the 20th, New York City, 1967. And now, one brand new all American award, Tony, born 26th of March, 1967.”

    Comedy legend Carl Reiner has died at the age of 98. While he was best known for his work on both the big and small screen, he also made several contributions to Broadway. First, as an actor in 1948’s Inside U.S.A. and 1950’s Alive and Kicking. Then, as a director of 1967’s Something Different, 1972’s Tough to Get Help, and 1980’s The Roast.
