Broadway will dim its marquee lights on June 1 in remembrance of the late Roundabout Theatre Company creative director Todd Haimes, who died April 19 at age 66.
“Todd Haimes was a drive on Broadway,” stated Charlotte St. Martin, President of The Broadway League. “He led with an enthusiastic sense of creativeness, willpower, and compassion and his legacy will endure due to his unbelievable efforts in championing arts schooling and outreach in addition to supporting rising expertise.”
Haimes, who served as a Board and Government Committee member of The Broadway League for the final 15 years, guided the Roundabout for 4 many years to turn into one of many largest and most influential non-profit theater firms each on and Off Broadway. Underneath his management, 50 productions had been nominated for Tony Awards, with 11 wins.
“As a colleague and buddy to so many,” St. Martin stated, “the loss to our group is nearly immeasurable. However we have fun all that he did to make the magic come alive on Broadway 8 occasions per week.”
Selections to dim marquee lights are made by the League’s Committee of Theatre House owners.
The Broadway lights will dim to honor Haimes on Thursday, June 1, for one minute at 6:45 p.m./ET.
