Doreen Montalvo Dead: 'In the Heights' Broadway Star Dies at 56


Doreen Montalvo, who starred in the Broadway production of In the Heights and Mrs. Doubtfire , died on October 17, as reported by her manager Steve Maihack on Instagram.


My favorite memory will be watching you as Gloria Fajardo in the OYF tour at the open-air outside KC Starlight theater….belting out ‘Mi Tierra’ to an audience of 8000, with the sun literally setting as if God himself was directing the most PERFECT moment for us all… DOREEN, what an absolute blessing to have known you on your incredible human journey.


While Broadway remained shut down due to coronavirus, which prematurely closed Mrs. Doubtfire three days after the show officially opened, Montalvo performed in a flash mob in Times Square on August 14 to pay tribute to theatre, as reported by Broadwayworld.com .


Amid quarantine, she spent time with her husband in Maine, painted, taught Broadway master classes online for kids, sang during live-stream performances, and continued to audition for roles via self-tape videos.


In December 2017, along with SCOBAR Entertainment and Joseph Macchia, she produced a benefit concert for Puerto Rico following the devastation of Hurrican Maria, as reported by Broadway.com .


Montalvo’s family and friends had shared their prayers for her recovery on social media, and following her death, people post beautiful tributes to the Broadway star.
