Marquee lights will be dimmed on July 18 at 7:45 PM for one minute.

Great White Way theaters will dim their lights to pay tribute to Elaine Stritch, the legendary Tony-winning Broadway performer who died on July 17 at the age of 89. Marquees will go dark on Friday, July 18 at 7:45 PM for one minute.

“Elaine Stritch’s big personality was matched by her big talent,” Broadway League executive director Charlotte St. Martin said in a statement. “Collaborating with some of Broadway’s greatest playwrights and composers throughout her lengthy career, her signature numbers and singular style created a memorable legacy.”

Stritch’s many Broadway credits included Tony-nominated performances in Bus Stop, Sail Away, Company and A delicate Balance. She made her Great White Way debut in 1946 in Loco, and last appeared on its boards in A Little Night Music. In 2002, her one-woman retrospective Elaine Stritch at Liberty won the Tony Award for Best Special Theatrical Event. A documentary was made of the show, which brought Stritch her second of three Emmys (the other two for guest appearances in Law and Order and 30 Rock).
