Producers Give Boost to Musical Theatre

Lane, Comley invest in CFA

Stewart F.Lane, Bonnie ComleyFor nearly a quarter of a century, producers Stewart F. Lane and Bonnie Comley have been the toast of Broadway, winning nine Tony Awards between them, including this year’s Tony for Best Musical for A Gentleman’s Guide to Love & Murder. They’ve also been generous supporters of BU’s College of Fine Arts.

Lane (CFA’73) cochairs the CFA Campaign and the Dean’s Advisory Board. The couple recently joined the ranks of $1 million–plus lifetime donors with the endowment of the Stewart F. Lane and Bonnie Comley Musical Theatre Fund to launch a new musical theatre concentration within the School of Theatre.

“We are so proud of Stewart and Bonnie’s many accomplishments in the Broadway arena,” says Jim Petosa, director of the CFA School of Theatre and artistic director of the New Repertory Theatre in Watertown. “Their lifelong commitment to the musical theatre form is now extended to the training of future generations of theatre artists through their legacy gift to the Boston University School of Theatre.”
