“Love and light for all of her friends, colleagues, and fans … my heart hurts all of us.”
He added, “It is an honor and a great pleasure to work with Doreen as its manager.
“From the moment we met it looked like we had been friends for years. Kind souls for sure.”
Addressing Doreen directly, he said, “My favorite memory will watch you as Gloria Fajardo on the OYF outdoor tour outside the KC Starlight theater … as if God Himself was directing the most perfect moments for us all. It was exciting.”
The actress starred in three Doubtfire previews, but unfortunately Broadway production was suspended in March when Corona Virus The epidemic struck.
She also portrayed a part in In The Heights’s Lin-Manuel Miranda, as well as Steven Spielberg’s West Side Story.
Her manager added, “She was making great strides in the TV world – which she was normal in. Doreen could do anything. It was like a lottery winning card.
“She was each one of us winning the lottery ticket. We will carry her, tell her story and remember the gift and love she shared with us all. And most importantly, love, as long as there is love.”
He concluded by saying, “DOREEN, what an absolute blessing to know you on your amazing human journey. I pray to God and I will love and miss you, Para Cimper. Para Cimper. Para Cimbré.”
a Twitter Doubtfire praised Mrs. Doubtfire in a tweet in which he wrote: “Mrs. Doubtfire is the musical family mourning the loss of Doreen Montalvo. Doreen’s immense talent was matched by her exceptional kindness and remarkable generosity.
“Her light shone brightly on and off the stage. She was loved by the whole company and everyone who was lucky enough to call her a colleague or friend. Our hearts are with her husband Mike and all of her family and friends.”
