Mark Blum Career

When Gore Vidal’s The Best Man was revived in 2000 and 2012, Blum appeared in both editions. He told Playbill in 2012 that participating in both plays 12 years apart was like being in a dream.

“It feels a little like a dream where you think it’s supposed to go in a certain way, but you look around and all the people are different. I open a door, and Angela Lansbury walks in instead of Elizabeth Ashley. I open another door, and it’s James Earl Jones, not Charles Durning,” he said. “It feels like I’m hallucinating instead of acting.”

Playwrights Horizons, an off-Broadway theater, confirmed Blum’s death on Twitter Thursday. “With love and heavy hearts, Playwrights Horizons pays tribute to Mark Blum, a dear longtime friend and a consummate artist who passed this week,” they tweeted. “Thank you, Mark, for all you brought to our theater, and to theaters and audiences across the world. We will miss you.”

Blum started on Broadway as a substitute and assistant manager at The Merchant in 1977. After that, he appeared in Neil Simon’s Lost in Yonkers in 1991, Twelve Angry Men in 2004, and The Assembly Parties in 2013.
