Ike Schambelan
Founding Artistic Director, TBTB, 1/20/40 — 2/5/15. Dearest TBTB family, friends, colleagues and fellow artists. With deepest sadness, we wish to report that Ike Schambelan, TBTB’s founding Artistic Director, friend, colleague and mentor, passed away Tuesday morning, February 3rd, 2015 at Calvary Hospital here in New York. After Ike’s battle with cancer, thankfully he is now at peace. While Ike is no longer with us, he left his heart behind with his beloved theater. It is now our mission to keep that heart beating — and so we shall. We hope you will join us in continued support of TBTB’s work and mission. We feel we are on the cusp of something truly groundbreaking!
