NEW YORK (REUTERS) - Broadway theatres will dim their marquees on Friday evening in memory of Tony Award winner and iconic Hollywood screen actress Lauren Bacall, who died on Tuesday at the age of 89.

Bacall, whose film roles and romance and marriage to actor Humphrey Bogart made her a legend during Hollywood's Golden Age, died in New York, where she had lived for several decades.

Funeral arrangements are still pending.

The Broadway League, which represents producers and theatres, said the marquees will be dimmed for a minute in her honour.
