Broadway Legend and Tony Winner Ann Reinking Dies, Age 71



- Anne died on Saturday, according to her sister-in-law Dahrla King. She was 71

- a statement from the family says “The world and our family have lost a vibrant, amazing talent and beautiful soul. Ann was the heart of our family and the life of the party. She was visiting our brother in Washington state when she went to sleep and never woke up. We will miss her more than we can say. Heaven has the best choreographer available now. I’m sure they are dancing up a storm up there! Annie, we will love and miss you always!!!”

- Anne was perhaps best known for playing Roxie Hart in 1977’s “Chicago,” replacing Gwen Verdon. She reprised the part when she returned for the 1996 revival of the famed production alongside Bebe Neuwirth as Velma Kelly. She won a Tony for Best Choreography for the Chicago revival.
