Tomorrow night the Great White Way will be a little dimmer when Broadway theatres dim their marquee lights in memory of James Gandolfini, “The Sopranos” star who earned a Tony Award nomination in 2009.
At exactly 8 p.m. The Broadway League says the lights will be dimmed for one minute.
Charlotte St. Martin, executive director of the League said: “Gandolfini was a consummate actor who brought individuality to each role and inspired a true connection with the audience.”
The 51-year-old actor died Wednesday in Rome. A funeral will be held Thursday at the Cathedral Church of Saint John the Divine in New York City.
The famous New Jersey son – Gandolfini received a Tony nomination for his role in the award-winning “God of Carnage.” He also appeared on Broadway in “On the Waterfront” in 1995 and “A Streetcar Named Desire” in 1992.
