Broadway theatres will dim their marquees in honor of the late Elliot Martin, a prolific theatre producer and stage manager who died May 21 at age 93. Marquees will go dark Friday, June 2 at 7:45 PM for one minute.
“For 70 years Elliot Martin brought entertaining, relevant, and powerful stories to the Broadway stage including memorable productions that are now considered classics,” Broadway League President Charlotte St. Martin said in a statement. “His credits as an actor, stage manager and producer include almost 50 productions which clearly show how dedicated he was to the industry and how important his contribution was to theatre. He will be greatly missed. Our thoughts are with his family, friends and colleagues.”
