The Chicago actor Steve Cinabro has died at the age of 49, according to an announcement from his family.
Steve was a longtime Chicago actor and member of the European Repertory Theatre. Among his credits with that company were Philippe Minyana’s “The Warriors” (2004), Tony Kushner’s “Slavs” (2003), “Happy End” (1998) and a very memorable Aegisthus in European Rep’s 1995 production of Steven Berkoff’s “Agamemnon.”
Steve, who was born in Blue Island, graduated from the Goodman School of Drama in 1987. He appeared in various TV shows and movies shot in Chicago, including “Turks,” “Early Edition,” and “The Untouchables.” Much of his work was for European Rep, but Steve also appeared in shows at the Shattered Globe Theatre, Organic Theatre and elsewhere.
Playwright Tracy Letts and fellow European Repertory Theatre member Dale Goulding both praised Steve’s contributions to the Chicago theater community that, in Goulding’s words, “he loved so much.”
Funeral mass is scheduled for Monday morning at 10 a.m. at the St Benedict’s Roman Catholic Church in Blue Island.
