Sarah Lawrence College remembers playwright Edward Allan Baker, a member of the Theatre faculty from 1995-2007, who passed away on November 20. BroadwayWorld recently shared a tribute to Baker and reflected on his work and legacy. Sarah Lawrence theatre faculty member Kevin Confoy remembers his colleague and friend fondly: “Ed Baker was an extraordinarily accomplished playwright whose characters resonate determination and resilience against great odds. Ed was a dynamic teacher and relentless advocate for his students. He had a profound impact upon not just our playwrights, but a great number of students who worked on Ed’s plays in their classes, and in the frequent productions of his plays on our stages. Ed’s legacy lives on in his insights, humor, and great generosity.”
