The bright lights of Broadway will be dimmed on Wednesday in honor of late actress Celeste Holm.
The Oscar-winning star, who shot to fame in a 1943 Broadway production of Oklahoma!, passed away on Sunday at the age of 95 and her glittering stage career will be remembered in New York’s famed theater district this week.
The lights of Broadway’s theaters will go dark on Wednesday and Holm’s husband, Frank Basile, will stand outside the St. James Theater – where Holm first performed in Oklahoma! – when the lights dim.
Charlotte St. Martin, Executive Director of The Broadway League, says in a statement, “Celeste Holm’s impressive career on stage and screen spanned six decades, so multi-generations of theater and film fans had the chance to appreciate her unique talent. Our thoughts are with her friends and family at this time.”
