Broadway's Lois Lane Dies

Actor-singer Patricia Marand, Tony Award nominee for her performance as Lois Lane in the 1966 Broadway musical It's a Bird...It's a Plane...It's Superman passed away on Thanksgiving at her Manhattan home.
The 74 year-old suffered from brain cancer, revealed family spokesperson Maryellen Lee.

Marand's other Broadway appearances included The King & I opposite Yul Brenner, and Man of La Mancha with Alfred Drake, plus Wish You Were Here, which famously featured an on-stage swimming pool. These had followed lead roles in Kiss Me Kate, Oklahoma, South Pacific and others.

A summer stock veteran, the native New Yorker also performed concert solos with several cities' symphonies as well as at the Hotel Pierre's Cotillion Room and the St. Regis's La Maisonette. Additionally, she made multiple visits to The Merv Griffin Show and The Ed Sullivan Show.

Her final television appearance was as Helen Barone on The Sopranos.
