Lovers, friends, and colleagues gathered in New Orleans to celebrate the founding editor’s open mind, questing spirit, and the delights he shared with the world.
Though he ran a magazine based in New York City, he tirelessly—and uniquely—spread the love around the entire national theatre scene.
The founding editor of American Theatre did everything with gusto, including mentoring two generations of theatre journalists.
At the national theatre magazine he founded in 1984, he spent decades covering and celebrating artists and companies in the U.S. and around the world.
After a three-decade run at the magazine he helped to found, O’Quinn will be succeeded by a current senior editor.
