Broadway to Dim Its Lights Feb. 24 in Memory of Producer-Director Theodore Mann
24 Feb 2012
The marquees of Broadway theatres in New York will be dimmed Feb. 24 at 8 PM for one minute in memory of award-winning producer-director Theodore Mann, who died Feb. 24 following a brief illness. He was 87.
In a statement, Charlotte St. Martin, executive director of The Broadway League, said, "Theodore Mann has been a major driving force behind Circle in the Square Theatre since its inception. His contributions to Broadway and off-Broadway are immeasurable both in the productions he created, and the talent that he nurtured. He will be missed by many in our community, and our hearts go out to his friends, family, and students."
