Broadway To Honor The Life & Memory Of Elizabeth Taylor

Written by Michael Lambarde on Mar. 25, 2011

Elizabeth Taylor was laid to rest after her tragic death this past week, but her legacy will forever remain in our hearts. To honor the trailblazer actress, including her humanitarian efforts, the Broadway League, announced on Thursday that the marquees in their theatre will go dark at approximately 8PM local time for a minute to remember the legendary actress.

Taylor passed away with her family in Los Angeles this past Wednesday at the age of 79. Before appearing in many movies, Taylor made appearances on Broadway for the first time back in 1981 for the revival of Lillian Hellman’s The Little Foxes. That role got her a nomination for a best actress awards at the Tony’s.

In 1983, Taylor would return to Broadway to star with her-then husband Richard Burton in Noel Cowards’ Private Lives. That year, she also worked on Broadway and helped produce the play The Corn is Green.
