Tribute planned for BacallBroadway theaters will dim their marquees on Friday evening in memory of Tony Award winner and iconic Hollywood screen actress Lauren Bacall, who died on Tuesday at the age of 89.
Bacall, whose film roles and romance and marriage to actor Humphrey Bogart made her a legend during Hollywood’s Golden Age, died in New York, where she had lived for several decades. Funeral arrangements are still pending.
The Broadway League, which represents producers and theaters, said the marquees will be dimmed for a minute in her honor.
“Lauren Bacall had a distinct presence on stage and screen during a career that spanned decades,” said Charlotte St. Martin, executive director of The Broadway League.
“Along with her talent and memorable performances, her timeless beauty and witty intelligence will be remembered.”
