Dana Reeve to Be Remembered on Broadway
Dana Reeve
Family and friends of late actress and activist Dana Reeve, who died of lung cancer at age 44 on March 6, will pay tribute to her April 10 at a private, invitation-only memorial service to be held at the New Amsterdam Theatre on Broadway.

In lieu of flowers, Playbill.com reports, the family has asked that donations be made in Reeve's honor to the Christopher Reeve Foundation (www.ChristopherReeve.org), which supports efforts to find a cure for spinal cord injuries.

Roger Rees, artistic director of the Williamstown Theatre Festival in Massachusetts, where Dana and Christopher met, said last month, "We mourn her loss, of course, but let us celebrate, too, this vibrant, optimistic, beautiful and thrillingly talented actress."
