Terry Allen Kramer

Native New Yorker. Heiress of her father, Wall Street legend Charlie Allen (Allen & Company), very active and prolific Broadway producer; many hits such as: (“Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf” [revival], “La Cage Aux Folles” [revival], “Movin’ Out,” “The Goat Who is Sylvia?” “Sugar Babies.” Very social (read: sociable), loves a mix of people, ages, types, interests; entertains frequently (and in a grand manner, although never grand) in her block-long Upper East Side duplex penthouse, beach house in Southampton (now on the market); also chatelaine of the biggest house in Palm Beach, now summers with her husband Nick Simunek (pictured right) in St. Tropez. Mother and grandmother, very laid-back in her demeanor, Terry has the confidence of a woman who was favored by a doting father, while at the same time she is adept at looking after the man in her life like a dutiful wife.

She’s generous with her friendship, with her hospitality and her acceptance of others. She and Simunek have been together for several years (since the death of her previous husband Irwin Kramer) and have been married (although never formally announced) for at least two.
