Sondheim Actress Barbara Bryne Dies

She may have been best known as the original George’s mother in “Sunday in the Park with George” and Jack’s mother in “Into the Woods,” but I knew Barbara Bryne best from her earlier years at the Guthrie Theater in Minneapolis. The Guthrie was my first contact with a professional repertory house. I particularly remember a production of “The School for Scandal” in which Bryne played Mrs. Candour. Bryne was 94.
