Philip G Levy

1944 — 2017


"The passing of Philip grieves me deeply. He was a great friend to Scena Theatre and a true believer in our work. For years, he was a steadfast donor and supporter. But, most of all, he was an absolutely lovely man. Godspeed, Philip."

—Robert McNamara

Artistic Director

Philip G Levy passed away suddenly and unexpectedly Thursday, October 12, 2017 on his way to New York City. A DC native , he was a "lifer" at the Sidwell Friends School and a graduate of the University of Wisconsin where he was very active in the Department of History. Philip is best known as the founder and owner of Bridge Street Books in Georgetown, referred to by George Will as "a small island of individuality" and by others as "the intellectual's bookstore." Conversations with Philip were lively and deep and spanned history, literature, politics and sports. He will be dearly missed by his family and his many friends and associates.
