News   Broadway Will Dim Its Lights for Elizabeth Taylor March 25
 
Broadway will dim its lights at 8 PM on March 25 in honor of late stage and screen icon Elizabeth Taylor, who died at the age of 79 in Los Angeles on March 23.

Broadway League chairman Paul Libin in a statement, "With her remarkable talent and extraordinary beauty, Elizabeth Taylor lit up the Broadway stage the same way she lit up the silver screen. Off stage, her tireless commitment to fighting AIDS as a co-founder of amfAR and founder of The Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation added yet another meaningful role to the story of her life. Our thoughts go out to her friends, family, and fans ... all of those who loved her." Taylor's  Broadway appearance in the 1981 revival of Lillian Hellman’s The Little Foxes earned the actress a Tony Award nomination. She returned to Broadway in 1983 in a revival of Noel Coward's comedy of divorced spouses in love, Private Lives, in which she starred as Amanda opposite her real-life ex-husband Richard Burton. On screen she captured the role of Edward Albee's dangerously captivating monster Martha in Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, also opposite Burton.
