Requiem for a theater lover

Posted By on Fri, Oct 30, 2009 at 2:34 PM

If you’re a regular theatergoer in Charlotte, chances are that you received more than a handful of playbills from Nathan Frenkel. I’ve seen him and his wife, photographer Marilyn Frenkel, at Theatre Charlotte, Actor’s Theatre of Charlotte, and Carolina Actors Studio Theatre on innumerable opening nights. Just before Rosh Hashana, I saw the Frenkels among a sparse crowd at an open North Carolina Dance Theatre rehearsal at Belk Theater. More recently, we had exchanged greetings at the

Just Do It season opener at Theatre Charlotte on Oct. 16.

So it was quite a shock to learn that Nathan Frenkel had died at Carolinas Medical Center on Oct. 22. Nate was beloved throughout the Charlotte theater community, and a memorial will be held at Actor’s Theatre of Charlotte, 650 E. Stonewall St., at 3 p.m. this Sunday. Marilyn Frenkel has asked that any donations be made to local theaters.
