Broadway Theaters to Dim Lights in Memory of Marin Mazzie
The three-time Tony Award nominee died yesterday at the age of 57.
The Broadway community will mourn the loss of three-time Tony Award nominee and Theater Hall of Fame inductee Marin Mazzie, who passed away on Thursday, September 13, at the age of 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 theaters dimming lights in her memory are significant to Mazzie's career. She appeared in three productions at the Al Hirschfeld Theatre (Man of La Mancha in 2003, Kiss Me, Kate in 1999, and Into the Woods in 1987). Her only Broadway appearance in a play was at the Broadhurst Theatre in Enron in 2010. She also performed in Passion (1994) at the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre and in Bullets Over Broadway (2014) at the St. James Theatre. In 2017 Mazzie was inducted into the Theater Hall of Fame; her commemoration is at the Gershwin Theatre.
Mazzie's husband, Jason Danieley, currently appears in a featured role in Pretty Woman: The Musical at the Nederlander Theatre. The production will dedicate the performance that evening to her memory in addition to dimming the lights.
In addition, Mazzie appeared in The King and I (2016), Next To Normal (2010), Spamalot (2006), Ragtime (1998), and Big River (1985).
