The marquees of the Broadway theatres in New York will be dimmed May 2 at 7:45 PM ET for one minute in memory of celebrated theatre director and actor Nicholas Martin, who passed away April 29 at age 75.
On Broadway, he directed, produced or acted in nearly 20 productions.
"Nicky Martin spent his life dedicated to the theatre. I felt fortunate that I was able to get to know him last year during Tony Awards season when he was nominated for Best Direction of a Play for Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike — a lovely last act to a long and prolific career directing and acting on stage. Our thoughts are with his family, friends, and colleagues,” said Charlotte St. Martin, executive director of the Broadway League, in a statement.
