Terry Dodd, a fixture on Denver's theater scene for decades, passed away in October; he will be remembered with a celebration of his life at 6 p.m. Monday, November 28, at the Arvada Center for the Arts and Humanities. Juliet Wittman, Westword's longtime theater critic, not only wrote about his productionsm but she'd also worked with him as an actor back in the mid-'70s, which she recounted in her remembrance of Terry Dodd. That piece inspired more memories. Says Kathy Murphy:
Thank you for writing such a lovely tribute. He was a wonderful man and had such a kind and loving spirit. His respect for everyone he worked with and his quiet calm will always be remembered. He was such a beautiful soul.
Thank you for you touching tribute to a friend. I already miss my dear friend. I picked up my phone to call him Saturday night to ask him to come see a show with me when I remembered... I'm so grateful for a friendship of nearly thirty years and an increased appreciation of the sunsets, sunrises and moonrises Terry so loved.
