September 14, 2018 — The Broadway community mourns the loss of Tony Award® nominee and Theater Hall of Fame inductee Marin Mazzie, who passed away on Thursday, September 13 at age 57. The Committee of Theatre Owners has decided to dim the lights of the Al Hirschfeld, Broadhurst, Gershwin, Gerald Schoenfeld, St. James, and Nederlander Theatres in her memory on Wednesday, September 19 at exactly 6:45pm for one minute.
The theatres dimming lights in her memory are significant to Ms. Mazzie’s career. She appeared in three productions at the Al Hirschfeld Theatre (formerly the Martin Beck Theatre) Man of La Mancha (2003); Kiss Me, Kate (1999); and Into the Woods (1987). Her only Broadway appearance in a play was at the Broadhurst Theatre in Enron (2010). She also performed in Passion (1994) at the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre (formerly the Plymouth Theatre) and in Bullets Over Broadway (2014) at the St. James Theatre. In 2017, Ms. Mazzie was inducted into the Theater Hall of Fame; her commemoration is at the Gershwin Theatre.
