1933 - 2014
All of us at the West Bank Café and Laurie Beechman Theatre are shocked and saddened to hear of the passing of our dear friend Joan Rivers. Over the last five years Ms. Rivers brightened our stage and our lives in countless ways. She brought so much joy and laughter to our staff and the thousands of audience members she entertained here. Her caring and giving spirit have been an example to all of us in how to live with grace and style. The lights of The Beechman will always be a little dimmer without Ms. Rivers’ gracing our stage. Our prayers are with Melissa and her family as well as with Joan’s amazing team at this difficult time.
