Theater Critic Anthony Del Valle - 1952 - 2013
Tony as some of us would affectionately call him, made no apologies for what he wrote. His opinions and thoughts resonated in Las Vegas' theater scene. He said it like it was and was either celebrated or loathed. But for those who knew him we knew he was right in his dissections of the comedies and tragedies of the scene. Tony was the best at his trade, shaking things up because he knew very well his thoughts would help improve the local scene and its amazing cast of thespians.
I am glad I got to speak to him just a few days before he left us. All the way to the end he had theater on his mind and spoke about as if he was still in the audience; watching, thinking, critiquing and writing. Tony will be hugely missed and we can only hope that one day Las Vegas can be blessed again with such a star.
