In memory of Bagley Wright (1924-2011) Jul 26, 2011

We at On the Boards will miss Bagley Wright and we honor the tremendous cultural legacy he leaves behind. It is clear that Bagley believed that a great city deserved great art. Through the constant support and involvement of the entire Wright family Seattle has developed a vibrant and active artistic community of organizations and artists that continue to present and produce art of world-class caliber. We are thankful for all that Bagley did for our entire community and specifically for his ongoing support of On the Boards. Bagley and Virginia Wright helped name our mainstage theater in recognition of their daughter Merrill and her accomplishments as a leader of our organization - we are privileged to continue to uphold his vision with the art we bring to Seattle and present on this stage.
