Last week, the theater community suffered a great loss with the death of Anthony Lane Hinkle. Below is a lovely tribute, penned by our fellow Baltimore theater reviewer, The Bad Oracle. Please feel free to share your own thoughts and favorite memories of Anthony below in the comments.
“My heart is beyond heavy today as I report the passing of one of our own: Anthony Lane Hinkle. Anthony was a founding member of The Collaborative Theatre and also Vice President of Fells Point Corner Theatre, both here in Baltimore city, and prior to that, of Shenandoah Summer Music Theatre and Stages Theatre Company. A veteran of the craft, Anthony was an accomplished prop and costume designer, producer, stage manager and director. His work, most recently on Death and the Maiden (Spotlighters), The 39 Steps (FPCT and The Collaborative), The Elephant Man (FPCT and The Collaborative), and Blackbird (FPCT) was highly critically acclaimed, by this site and many others. Anthony was meticulous, exacting, and brilliant, particularly as a director. His work will continue to set a high bar for small theater in this city for many years to come.”
