In a statement Charlotte St. Martin, executive director of The Broadway League, said, "The intelligence and intensity of Ron Silver's presence on stage was a gift to live theatre. I've enjoyed watching his performances in every medium, but I'm grateful that his extraordinary talent contributed to Broadway’s history of great actors." Mr. Silver won a Tony Award for his portrayal of an anxious film producer about to close a big deal in the original Broadway run of David Mamet's Hollywood satire Speed-the-Plow.
