The beloved wife of Cabaret Scenes Publisher Peter Leavy, Barbara Fass Leavy, passed away peacefully this morning after a long and courageous battle with cancer.

The cabaret community and beyond knew her as a gentle and highly intelligent woman who was an excellent writer, educator, loving mother and devoted wife. Her contributions to Cabaret Scenes elevated the publication. She will be sorely missed by many and especially the cabaret community where she was a great supporter to many performers.

Her funeral will be at Riverside Chapels at Amsterdam Avenue and 76th Street on Monday at 11:45 AM — with Barbara Leavy and Peter Leavy.
