The marquees of Broadway theatres in New York will be dimmed Aug. 15 at 7:45 PM for one minute in memory of the legendary stage and screen star Lauren Bacall, who died Aug. 12 at the age of 89.
"Lauren Bacall had a distinct presence on stage and screen during a career that spanned decades,” said Charlotte St. Martin, executive director of The Broadway League, in a statement. “Along with her talent and memorable performances, her timeless beauty and witty intelligence will be remembered. Our thoughts are with her family, friends and fans.”
