Broadway Dims the Lights for Pinter

Harold pinter Broadway theatres will dim their marquee lights for one minute tonight, Dec. 30, in honor of the late playwright, actor, essayist, novelist, screenwriter, poet, and director Harold Pinter. Pinter died Dec. 24 at age 78.

Charlotte St. Martin, executive director of The Broadway League, said in a statement:

"Harold Pinter has been called one of the most influential and imitated playwrights of his generation. He repeated on several occasions that he had 'written 29 damn plays, isn't that enough?' We are so grateful for his genius and distinct contributions to modern theatre."
