“I worked hand-in-glove with Jay for two decades,” said Jack Viertel, who served as the Encores! artistic director from 2000-2020. “He was always the most knowledgeable, passionate, and feistiest person in the room. He loved actors and wanted every one of them to succeed. I’ll miss that spirit, that optimism, and that deep well of knowledge forever.”
