New York, New York (NBC) – Broadway theaters in New York City dimmed their lights Saturday in memory of Angela Lansbury.
Lansbury died on October 11 at the age of 96.
The six-time Tony Award winner’s career spanned six decades on Broadway.
A committee of theater owners decided to turn off the lights of Broadway theaters in New York City for one minute at 7:45 p.m.
Charlotte St. Martin, president of the Broadway League, spoke of Lansbury’s legacy, noting that she was “undoubtedly one of the most famous actors on Broadway.”
In addition, “His influence on the world of musical theater will live on forever.”
Lansbury’s acting credits include Hotel Paradiso, Sweeney Todd, Murder, She Wrote and Gore Vidal’s The Best Man.
