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."
