"In keeping with a long-standing Broadway tradition, Broadway In Chicago will dim the marquee lights to provide Chicago with an appropriate moment to reflect on Roy Leonard, a champion of Chicago's Theater Community, and two of Chicago's talented actors, gone before their time, Molly Glynn and Bernie Yvon, who among many other Chicago stages, reopened the Oriental Theatre as Harry Houdini in Ragtime," said Lou Raizin, president of Broadway In Chicago, in a statement. "Our theatre family is suffering huge losses and they will be greatly missed."

Bank of America Theatre is located at 18 West Monroe; Cadillac Palace Theatre is located at 151 West Randolph; Broadway Playhouse at Water Tower Place is located at 175 E. Chestnut; and Oriental Theatre is located at 24 West Randolph.
