Broadway lights to dim in honour of Eli Wallach, who won a Tony Award in 1951

NEW YORK, N.Y. - Broadway theatres will dim their marquee lights Friday night in memory of Eli Wallach, the movie and theatre star who earned a best featured actor Tony Award in 1951.

The Broadway League said the lights will be dimmed for one minute starting at 7:45 p.m. Eastern time.

Wallach died Tuesday evening in New York from natural causes. He performed in more than two dozen Broadway shows, including his award-winning turn opposite Maureen Stapleton in Tennessee Williams' "The Rose Tattoo."

His other Broadway credits include "Camino Real," ''The Chairs and the Lesson," ''Mister Roberts," ''The Teahouse of the August Moon," ''Major Barbara," ''Luv," ''Rhinoceros" and "Staircase." He and his wife Anne Jackson appeared together in 15 Broadway plays, becoming one of the best-known acting couples in American theatre.
