I had heard some second-hand murmurs about Jack Parrish around the time “Henry IV, Part 2” opened and it turns out that they were true. Jack has been battling lung cancer and is reportedly back in Richmond from Kentucky for treatment. My source has termed him a “lung cancer survivor” and the email that you may have seen that originated with Bridget Gethins says he is doing well. By any account, he could do with kind thoughts and prayers. I fervently hope he is on the road to remission and that he emerges robust and healthy.
Here’s an email address for Jack if you want to send him your best wishes.
