Abbott meets the Marshalls

Stage directors, choreographers fete siblings

NEW YORK — Winners of those lifetime achievement awards keep getting younger and younger.

For the first time, the Society of Stage Directors & Choreographers gave its Mr. Abbott Award to a brother and sister, Kathleen and Rob Marshall.

The March 7 gala at the Lighthouse brought forth the following observation on mortality from the 44-year-old director of “Chicago.” “If you add up our ages, Mr. Abbott still has 20 years on us,” said the Oscar winner.

Renee Zellweger, nearly in disguise with long brunette hair, kept calling her “Chicago” director “exceptional” as she offered an exact replication of her Doris Day routine from “Down With Love,” which Marshall, sadly, did not helm.
