Norma Langworthy

Producer
( b. Jun 24, 1919 Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - d. Jan 28, 2012 New York, New York, USA ) Female
Norma Langworthy was a life-long theatre devotee who produced plays Off-Broadway and on.

Forty years after a youthful career as a dancer, Mrs. Langworthy began her career as a producer. Off-Broadway, she produced Cliffhanger, The Perfect Party, Suds, The Springhill Singing Disaster, The Complete Works of Shakespeare (Abridged) and, in 1988, Athol Fugard's The Road to Mecca.

Her first Broadway venture was an associate producer of Sweet Sue in 1987. She was nearly 70 at the time. She went on to co-produce the Broadway premieres of Martin McDonagh's The Beauty Queen of Leenane and The Lonesome West, and revivals of The Best Man and A Thousand Clowns.

She also supported many New York theatre companies, including the Roundabout Theatre Company, which, in December 2005, named the Langworthy Lounge in the American Airlines Theatre after her.
