Broadway to honour Jack Klugman and Charles Durning
NEW YORK (AP) - The theatre community will honour actors Jack Klugman and Charles Durning by dimming Broadway's lights in back-to-back memorials.
The marquees at all Broadway theaters will go dark for one minute at 8pm Thursday (9am Friday Singapore time) in honour of Durning, who died Monday at 89. Durning played several important Broadway roles, including in a 1990 revival of Cat On A Hot Tin Roof, David Rabe's Boom Boom Room and Inherit The Wind in 1996.
On Friday, the 40 Broadway marquees will go dark at 8pm for Klugman, who also died Monday at 90. Klugman earned a Tony Award nomination for Gypsy in 1960, and his Broadway roles included parts in I'm Not Rappaport and The Sunshine Boys.
