Broadway Dims Lights In Honor Of Natasha Richardson
Last night at 8pm, Broadway paid tribute to star Natasha Richardson by dimming the theatre district’s lights for a minute.
Natasha, who passed away on Wednesday from a traumatic head injury after a skiing accident, was best known for her work on Broadway. It was on stage where she met her husband Liam Neeson in 1992 and where she won a Tony for her work in Cabaret.
The daughter of actress Vanessa Redgrave and director Tony Richardson, Natasha studied at the University of London’s Central School of Speech and Drama, where her former Professor, Gavin Henderson, plans to start a scholarship fund in her honor.
Had Natasha survived she was slated to star with her mother, Vanessa, in the Broadway revival of A Little Night Music.
Husband Liam Neeson, Vanessa and sister Joely Richardson attended the tribute in Manhattan.
