I.W. notes that it’s been a sad time for those of us who recall the theater glory days of the 1970s and 1980s. Jack Edwards, who ran the Guthrie’s costume shop for 20 years and then splashed his creativity into a dozen other high-profile ventures, died at age 78. Then came word that Stephen Kanee, an artistic associate who was a key force at the Guthrie and also taught for many years at the University of Minnesota, had died at his Minneapolis home. Edwards and Kanee were key players in the years when Twin Cities theater started its ascendancy in national circles. As Jack Barkla, the legendary set designer and good friend to both men, said, “It’s been a pretty tough week for me.”
