Broadway Will Dim Its Lights in Memory of Late Producer Ashton Springer
23 Jul 2013
The marquees of Broadway theatres in New York will be dimmed July 24 at 8 PM ET for one minute in memory of producer Ashton Springer, who died July 15 at age 92.
“A producer or co-producer of numerous Broadway shows in the 1970s and early ’80s, Ashton Springer produced plays and musicals by and about African-Americans that brought both black and white audiences to Broadway. Our thoughts are with his family and friends,” said Charlotte St. Martin, executive director of The Broadway League, in a statement.
