NEW YORK (AP) — Two-time Tony Award winner Martin Pakledinaz, who designed hundreds of costumes for stars such as Sutton Foster and Patti LuPone, has died of cancer. He was 58.
His agent, Patrick Herold, says Pakledinaz died Sunday at his home in New York.
Pakledinaz received Tonys for his designs for "Kiss Me Kate" and "Thoroughly Modern Millie." Additional nominations include his work on "Lend Me A Tenor," ''Blithe Spirit," ''Gypsy," ''The Pajama Game," ''Golden Child" and "The Life."
He most recently nabbed a nomination for this season's "Nice Work If You Can Get It."
He also designed costumes for the San Francisco Ballet, the Mark Morris Dance Group, the Metropolitan Opera's "Iphigenie en Tauride," the Rockettes in the 2011 Radio City Music Hall Christmas Spectacular and the film "My Week With Marilyn."
