Chase Mishkin (1937-2022), a prolific theatrical producer and a flamboyant personality, was one of the most prominent female producers on Broadway. Though consistently involved in the arts as a philanthropist (she served on President Carter's Advisory Committee on the Arts), she began her professional career in Los Angeles after the death of her husband, a carpet manufacturer. She soon moved to New York where she won two Tony Awards and brought the beloved character Dame Edna Everage to Broadway, along with dozens of shows including The Beauty Queen of Leenane and the musical adaptation of Dirty Rotten Scoundrels.
