Broadway Lights to Dim in Honor of Robin Williams


Robin Williams


The 63-year-old actor had a number of stage productions in his career including 'Waiting for Godot'.

Broadway is mourning the death of Robin Williams. Lights on Broadway theaters in New York City will be dimmed on Wednesday, August 13 at 7.45 P.M. for one minute in honor of the comedy legend who died on Monday at the age of 63.

Williams took part in some stage productions throughout his career, co-starring in Mike Nichol's 1988 off-Broadway version of "Waiting for Godot" with Steve Martin. He later had a one-man special in 2002 on Broadway titled "Robin Williams: Live on Broadway".

"Robin Williams was a comedic genius with limitless talent and stunning versatility who left this world far too early. He made an impact on everyone he met or entertained," Charlotte St. Martin, executive director of the Broadway League, said. "Whether on screen or live on stage, his multifaceted talent always created memorable performances. Robin Williams will be greatly missed and our thoughts are with his family, friends and fans."

On Tuesday, the cast of "Aladdin" already paid tribute to Williams, who provided voice to the Genie in the Disney animated classic. James Monroe Iglehart, who plays the Genie in the stage production, led the cast and audience in a touching rendition of "Friend Like Me".
