The New Hampshire theater community is mourning the loss of one of its pillars.
Beth Ann O’Hara passed away Wednesday morning. She was 73.
O’Hara founded the New Thalian Players, with whom she produced and directed 50 plays over 25 years.
She was known simply as “mom” to countless aspiring Granite State actors.
A service will be held Friday in Manchester.
O’Hara was the mother of four daughters, including actress and comedian Sarah Silverman.
