Michael P. Finnegan

6/13/1943 to 5/28/2022

One of the earliest Landmark Musicals board of directors, Michael has been a huge part of the Albuquerque Theatre community for several decades. Prior to sitting on the board of Landmark Musicals, Michael was also on the boards of the Albuquerque Little Theatre and ACLOA/MTS. In addition to his board work, Michael is best remembered for his incredible talents onstage.

An accomplished dancer, Michael danced with the New Mexico Ballet Company and then started performing with the Albuquerque Civic Light Opera. From the King & I (King) to Sweeney Todd (Sweeney) to the Music Man (Harold Hill) to My Fair Lady (Henry Higgins) to Camelot (King Arthur) and so many more, then on to the Albuquerque Little Theatre for A Chorus Line, Gypsy and Annie.

His first show for Landmark was Side By Side By Sondheim in 2009. Michael went on to perform for Landmark in: The Fantasticks, How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, 1776, Hello, Dolly!, Annie, Putting It Together and his most magnificent performance as Teyve in Fiddler on the Roof. A consummate performer, Michael was an inspiration to those who worked with him. Landmark Musicals grieves his loss.

He shall be deeply missed.

Landmark Musicals’ collaboration with Sandia Preparatory School allows both programs to utilize each other’s strengths with the goal of bringing the best possible product to Albuquerque stages.
