Marian Shaw

Marian Shaw, a theatrical producer and widow of novelist Irwin Shaw, died Dec. 27 in Rancho Mirage fol-lowing a massive stroke she suffered on Nov. 28. She was 80.

Born Marian Edwards in New York City in 1916, she was reared in Hollywood. Her father was silent-screen actor Edward (Snitz) Edwards.

She met Irwin Shaw after auditioning for a part in one of his plays. She didn’t get the role.

Married in 1939, the Shaws moved to Paris in 1950 following publication of “The Young Lions.”

While her husband wrote such novels as “Rich Man, Poor Man” and “Acceptable Losses,” she produced plays in Paris, including adaptations of “Absence of a Cello” and “Your Own Thing.”

Irwin Shaw died in 1984.

She is survived by her son, Adam Shaw, two nephews and two nieces.
