Broadway Theaters to Dim Lights to Honor Taylor

Broadway will honor Elizabeth Taylor by dimming its lights on Friday.

The Broadway League, the national trade association, said Thursday that theater marquees will go dark at 8 p.m. for one minute in memory of the screen siren.

The actress died in Los Angeles on Wednesday at age 79.

Taylor made her first appearance on Broadway in the 1981 revival of Lillian Hellman’s “The Little Foxes” and was nominated for a best actress Tony Award.

Taylor returned to Broadway in 1983 as producer and star of Noel Coward’s “Private Lives” opposite her former husband, Richard Burton. She also produced “The Corn is Green” that year.

Known more as a film actress, Taylor brought to the screen stage classics such as Tennessee William’s “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof.”
