Goodbye, Ellen Stewart.

Ellen Stewart, founder of La MaMa, passed away this morning. She was 91. The folks over at Flux posted this beautiful quote from Stewart:
Not knowing anything about theaters, I thought it was like playing house...I would have this little theater and they would write plays and all their friends would be in them and live happily ever after."
Let Youngblood continue in this tradition.

Goodbye, Ellen. Downtown is certainly duller without you.
