Joel lost his battle with ALS on November 7 in the presence of his family. Joel was an enthusiastic proponent of theatre at each level — amateur and professional, big or small. He founded the website DC Metro Theater Arts which gave an outlet to dozens of writers covering theater along the mid-Atlantic coast from Virginia to New York. He only recently joined ATCA and was only able to attend one conference before the onset of ALS, also know as Lou Gehrig’s disease. Click here for an online tribute at DC Metro Theater Arts.
