April 3, 1941 - April 6, 2020
It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Jun Maeda, beloved friend and dear colleague of Ellen Stewart and all of us at La MaMa. Jun Maeda came to La MaMa from Japan in 1970 with the Tokyo Kid Brothers and Shuji Terayama and has been a treasured resident artist ever since. His impact on La MaMa and theatre has deeply influenced and touched generations of artists. We will miss him terribly.
