From Arena Stage:

The greater D.C. area lost a beloved artist, friend and colleague May 1, 2016 when Vincent Alvin Hill died following a fight with cancer. Hill’s life will be celebrated by all who would like to honor him during a memorial service at Arena Stage the Mead Center for American Theater (1101 Sixth St., SW) Monday, June 27, 2016 at 7:30 p.m. in the Fichandler Stage. Doors will open at 7:00 p.m.

In his role as wig, hair and makeup supervisor, Hill was an important part of the Arena Stage family whose kindness, caring attention and talent as an artist and performer were at the core of what makes Arena what it is. Hill worked at countless area theaters, including Signature Theatre, and traveled as the makeup artist for Chaka Khan, Stephanie Mills and Sheryl Lee Ralph.
