David LaGraffe, 1945-2017
June 16, 2017
We, the brothers and sisters of Portland Playback Theatre, are heartbroken to announce the passing of our artistic director, David LaGraffe. David died suddenly, June 14, from a stroke. He was the founder of our company nearly 12 years ago. He taught us improv, acting and true love. We will carry on in his name. Please send your prayers to his beloved wife, Claudia Hughes, his family, and skyward for David, certainly the direction in which he's headed. Lights up!
