Michael Kuchwara, who found a worldwide readership in writing about the theater for The Associated Press, as both reporter and critic, for a quarter-century, died on Saturday in Manhattan. He was 63. His death, at Beth Israel Hospital, was caused by idiopathic ischemic lung disease, said his sister, Pat Henley. He had been working until earlier this month, she said. As passionate about the theater as he was industrious, Mr. Kuchwara was known in the theater world for his seeming ubiquity. Based in New York, he covered Broadway and Off Broadway and frequently made out-of-town trips to see shows. – From NY Times
