Rebecca Luker Dies at Age 59

It is with great sadness that I write that three time Tony Nominee Rebecca Luker died of ALS today. She was an enchanting singer, actress who won three Tony nominations in revivals of Show Boat, The Music Man and Mary Poppins. Her soprano voice was joyous to hear.

She is survived by her Broadway 7-time Tony nominee husband Danny Burstein who had been starring on Broadway in Moulin Rouge!

Rebecca also appeared in The Secret Garden The Sound of Music, Nine and Fun Home.

She will be missed by so many!!
