Broadway to Dim Lights; Co-star Reacts to Lynn Redgrave’s Death

Broadway announced Monday that it will dim its lights for late actress Lynn Redgrave, while a former co-star shared fond recollections.

The marquees of theaters on the Great White Way will dim on Tuesday, May 4 at 7 p.m. for one minute. Charlotte St. Martin, Executive Director of the Broadway League, commented, "In addition to Lynn Redgrave’s genius as a multi-talented performer and writer, she was very generous with her time and influence. My memories of her brilliant performances on stage are matched with seeing her dedicated activities offstage. Whether participating in an Actors Fund meeting or a walkathon for charity, her warmth and selflessness always made the day brighter. Our thoughts are with her family, friends, and audiences."

Oscar-winning actor Geoffrey Rush, who shared the screen with Redgrave in 'Shine,' said, "I loved working with Lynn. She was a fabulous, playful actress. She could put zany into drama and heartbreak into comedy. Lynn infused her life and work with strength, wit and the most endearing and generous humility. I am deeply saddened at this already sad time for her family."
