Eminent critic Caldwell Titcomb dies

Caldwell Titcomb, president of the Boston Theater Critics Association and professor emeritus of theater criticism at Brandeis, has died of leukemia at age 84.

Though ailing, Titcomb still made it to the Elliot Norton Awards ceremony last month to present the Norton Prize for Sustained Excellence to director Scott Edmiston, head of the Brandeis' Office of the Arts.

Known for his kind, gentlemanly demeanor, Titcomb wrote for New England Entertainment Digest, the Bay State Banner, TheArtsFuse.com, Playbill On-Line and Total Theater.com. He also authored 50 articles for the two-volume Oxford Encyclopedia of Theatre & Performance.
