From his debut in Caryl Churchill's The Skriker at The Public Theater in 1996 to his final stage appearance as Willy Loman in the 2012 Broadway revival of Death of a Salesman, Philip Seymour Hoffman was an actor who never forgot his stage roots. Though he had a profitable Hollywood career and had won an Academy Award, Hoffman came back to the theater year after year, not only as an actor but as a director and an artistic director of the Labyrinth Theater Company. Hoffman died of a drug overdose on February 2, and the theater community will honor his memory by dimming the lights of Broadway's marquees at 7:45pm on February 5. In the gallery below, TheaterMania looks back at Hoffman's theatrical legacy, which truly define the phrase "stage animal."
