In Memoriam: Max Daniel Weinstein, Stage Manager, 40

Bill Hare • Industry News • July 23, 2020

Max Weinstein, December 21, 1979–July 5, 2020

Max Weinstein, former Stage Manager, Stage Managers’ Association member, and most recently Social Media Manager for SMA partner, the Actors Federal Credit Union, passed away unexpectedly of a heart attack on July 5th, 2020 at the age of 40.

Max was a great friend of the Stage Managers’ Association. He was instrumental in securing the ability of Professional and Associate SMA members to join the ActorsFCU directly through their SMA membership. The results of his diligence and commitment enables those among us who work outside of the major performance unions an opportunity to enjoy the liberation from more unsympathetic financial institutions. And for those of us who work within the major performance unions, the ActorsFCU pays a small fee to the SMA for each new member who signs up, thereby allowing us to expand our membership programs.

We in the New York Metro region will miss Max’s regular companionship at our local gatherings. He has left a legacy of financial opportunity for stage managers for which we can all be grateful.
