In the early hours of November 27, 2021, Philip’s long battle with lymphoma came to an end. He transitioned in the same way that he took every step of his arduous journey: with courage, grace, and in the arms of his beloved wife, Maureen. He was peaceful and surrounded by family and friends at the last.
About The Foundation
The Philip Cuomo Family Foundation is committed to preserving the legacy of Philip Cuomo. Our first mission is to secure a permanent home, at the CoHo Theatre building, for a consortium of performing arts organizations in Portland.
About The Cuomo Theatre COllaborative
Performance requires a place. A place to make, to practice, to gather, and to share a visceral experience. Smaller itinerant companies and individual artists are dependent on access to high quality, affordable performance, rehearsal, teaching, and office spaces. Over the last several years, venue after venue has closed or downsized. There is a scarcity crisis that limits opportunities, and Covid has compounded this problem.
There is no shortage of creative sparks lighting up Portland – they just need the right place to land, catch, and burn steady. The Cuomo Theatre Collaborative is a consortium made up of Third Rail Repertory Theatre, PETE (Portland Experimental Theatre Ensemble), and CoHo Productions, working in tandem with the Philip Cuomo Family Foundation to provide this place at the NW Raleigh Building in Portland, OR.
