Mickey Grossman memorial June 13 at Apollo Theatre

Memorial services for Grossman Jack partner and talent agent Mickey Grossman will be held next Monday, June 13 at the Apollo Theatre, 2540 N. Lincoln, an appropriate venue to accommodate an SRO gathering of his many friends, colleagues, clients and admirers.  

Doors will open at 6 p.m. and the service will begin at 7.  For those unable to attend, the service will be streamed at www.livestream.com.

The much respected and admired agent died on Memorial Day, on what would have been his 58th birthday, after a year of battling pancreatic cancer.

Anyone who wishes to share a brief memory, story, song, poem or thoughts during the evening is welcome to do so. “Mickey Casual” attire for the service is perfectly acceptable, says his long-time good friend, casting director Jennifer Rudnicke, who is helping the Grossman Jack staff in planning the memorial service.

Those who have photos or videos to contribute to the memorial services should send them to lindaj@grossmanjack.com, no later than Thursday, by the end the business day. 

Videos may be emailed to casting director Mickey Paskal at Mickie@prcasting.com, or phone 312/527-0665 to schedule a taping time at the PRC office at 10 W. Hubbard St.  Rudnicke says more than 25 actors have responded to her company’s invitation to tape their tributes.  

In lieu of flowers, donations may be sent to American Cancer Society 800/227-2345 or click here to donate online.
