Everett Quinton and Charles Ludlam:
According to David Kaufman’s book, Preposterous. Ludlam met Quinton at the beginning of 1975 while travelling along Christopher Street, according to the play The Theatre Life and Times of Charles Ludlam. They spent the night together but then lost contact. When Ludlam died of AIDS in 1987, Quinton took over as artistic director, guiding the company through a decade in which AIDS claimed the lives of some of the brightest stage artists, New York rents skyrocketed, arts funding was slashed, and the cost of producing off-off-Broadway became nearly impossible for troupes like the Ridiculous. The company left its One Sheridan Square headquarters in 1995 (now home to Axis Theatre Company), and Quinton’s tenure as creative director ended in 1997. There would be no succession.
