Broadway to Dim Its Lights May 4 in Honor of Lynn Redgrave
03 May 2010
The marquees of the Broadway theatres will be dimmed May 4 at 7 PM for one minute to pay tribute to the late actress Lynn Redgrave, who died May 2 at her home in Connecticut.
Charlotte St. Martin, executive director of The Broadway League, stated, "In addition to Lynn Redgrave's genius as a multi-talented performer and writer, she was very generous with her time and influence. My memories of her brilliant performances on stage are matched with seeing her dedicated activities offstage. Whether participating in an Actors Fund meeting or a walkathon for charity, her warmth and selflessness always made the day brighter. Our thoughts are with her family, friends, and audiences."

Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
