In memoriam of Vinie Burrows

“Vinie Burrows was a Stalwart and Staunch Supporter of Theater for the New City. A wonderful and very active Board member, Vinie was also, a renowned actress and a member of the United Nations as an NGO advocate for Women’s Rights. She performed many times at, and for, Theater for the New City, and is well remembered, not only for her Artistic excellence but also as a teacher and inspiration for the young writers whose future has always been in the hands of Theater for the New City. Her philosophy of inclusion included her instrumental backing of low ticket prices and TNC’s free ticket program, our After School cultural arts program-Free to neighborhood children, and the 4 major community events that TNC presents every year. The 5 borough Street theater tour of a new musical, The village Halloween Costume ball, loaded with New Theater works, the wonderful annual Love n Courage Gala and the LES-Lower East Side festival of the Arts, a 3 day event packed with theater, music, dance and film. She was a beautiful woman both inside and out. And remarkably, kept that beauty through her 99th year. Her legacy is strong and lives on. As she, herself will continue to live in our Hearts”

Vinie Burrows was a force of nature; a dynamic actress; and a fierce fighter for women’s rights. May her lively spirit live on!

Vinie stood up for peace, justice and human rights. She was also an organizer extraordinaire. In and out of the theater. She inspired everyone she touched. Thank you, Vinie.
