Martha Coigney (1933 - 2016)

Martha Coigney (l) with Ellen Stewart (r)

It it with great sadness that we lean about the passing of Martha Coigney, a very special person who was important to the history of La MaMa.  Martha was the served as Director of the U.S. Center of the International Theatre Institute (ITI) from 1966 to 2003 and was integral to the incorporation of international performance to the programming at La MaMa. Our thoughts are with her family and friends at this sad time.
