Her A Chorus Line costar Baayork Lee paid a tribute on social media and wrote, "I am very sad to say my Sagittarian sister Pam Blair has gone to play with her [A Chorus Line] Colleagues among the clouds. We always wrote to one another no matter where we were on that day. What a colorful character she was as depicted in the Val monologue in the show."

"You are free now Pammie so dance, dance, dance among the stars," Lee added. 

A post in Blair's loving memory was also shared by the verified Twitter account of the late Marvin Hamlisch, the original composer of A Chorus Line. It read, "We are saddened to hear that Pamela Blair, the original "Val" in A Chorus Line, has passed away.
