News   West End Dimmed Lights Sept. 14 in Show of Respect

As a mark of respect for the victims of Tuesday's terrorist attacks in the United States, London's theatres dimmed their marquee lights for five minutes on Sept. 14.

The European Union also declared Sept. 14 to be a day of mourning with three minutes silence observed at 11AM.

New York's theatres reopened on Thursday evening, dimming their lights prior to each performance in honor of those deceased. The TKTS ticket booth which was previously housed in one of the World Trade Center towers was destroyed in the attacks, but the TKTS Times Square location reopened last week. The Theatre Development Fund, which operates the TKTS booths in New York, announced that none of its employees were harmed during Tuesday's attack.
