Remembering John McGarry
Posted on: October 18, 2021
The Board, Leadership Council, and staff of the Roundabout Theatre mourn the loss of John McGarry. John joined our Board in 1996 and was elected to Director Emeritus in 2013 after 17 years of service to our organization.
He shepherded us through the renovation and reopening of our first permanent home, the American Airlines Theatre, on 42nd Street, as well as our purchase of Studio 54, followed by the creation of the Steinberg Center. As an advertising giant, he lent his talents and expertise along with his agency, McGarryBowen, to help us through some extraordinary times in our history. Mostly though, he was a dear friend – kind, passionate about theatre, and the most extraordinary advocate. We miss him dearly. Our hearts and thoughts are with his wife, Gilda, and his children, John and Victoria, along with his grandchildren.
