SALEM--Patricia Marand. Tony Award nominated Broadway star, Patricia Marand, who graced the stage opposite such theatre greats as Yul Brynner, Alfred Drake, Jack Cassidy and Dan Dailey, passed away on November 27th [2008], due to brain cancer. Marand was nominated for the Tony Award in 1966 for her role as Lois Lane in the HalPrince-directed Broadway production of "It's A Bird It's A Plane It's Superman," composed by Charles Strouse which The New York Times once called "the best musical of the season." A statuesque, red haired beauty with an unforgettable rich and melodic soprano voice, Marand's performances epitomized Broadway theatre with memorable grace and style. Marand began her career in the hey-days of Broadway playing leading roles in "Wish You Were Here," "Kiss Me Kate," "Pajama Game," "Guys and Dolls," "Oklahoma," "Man of La Mancha," "Kismet" and "South Pacific," to name a few. While the Broadway stage was her true home, Marand's voice enchanted thousands in acclaimed concert solos with the Chicago, Cleveland, Pittsburgh, New Haven and Minneapolis symphony orchestras, as well as during engagements at the Cotillion Room at New York's Hotel Pierre and La Maisonette at the St. Regis. She frequently appeared on television on the Merv Griffin, Johnny Carson and Ed Sullivan shows. She also appeared recently on the small screen as Helen Barone in "The Sopranos." A native New Yorker, Marand always lit up the room at operas, theaters, charitable benefits and political events around the world. Daughter of the late Patrick and Justine Marandino, she leaves behind her loving husband and love of her life, Irving Salem, brother Robert, sister-in-law Joan, nephew Rob, and nieces Missy, Kimberly and Cristin.
