I heard in a thoughtful email from leela_cat, who had confirmed the news by finding this article: "‘Punk-rock renaissance man’ Greg Kramer dies on eve of rehearsals." As the article mentions, Kramer was a novelist, playwright, director, magician and all-around clever guy as well as an actor. Leela_cat shares a personal memory of him here. I never met him, myself, but I know several people who have, and none ever found him anything but delightful and enthusiastic.
We're poorer without him, and richer for having had him while we did.
Addendum 4/10: This news was not in today's forkni-l digest. I expect that Libby of the Ratpack will share it on list when she's feeling up to it.
Addendum 5/01: For more information, links to media coverage and a Twitter feed, please see the formal tribute page.
