The statement continues, "Over that time, while fighting her own fight, she took it upon herself to help spread awareness of Ovarian Cancer and to help find an early detection for the disease, of which, currently, there is none."

Mazzie is survived by her mother Donna Mazzie, brother Mark Mazzie and her husband. There will be a private gathering in the immediate future and a fuller Celebration of Life to be planned.

"The divine and courageous Marin Mazzie was #TonyAwards-nominated for PASSION, RAGTIME, and KISS ME, KATE. We join with her husband, Broadway's Jason Danieley, her friends and family, and all her fans to mourn her untimely passing," The Tony Awards tweeted Thursday. "Rest in peace"
