Broadway lights dimmed for Taylor

Broadway will honour Elizabeth Taylor by dimming its lights.

The Broadway League, the US national trade association, said that theatres will go dark for one minute at 8 pm tonight in memory of the screen siren.

The actress died in Los Angeles on Wednesday, aged 79.

Elizabeth made her first appearance on Broadway in the 1981 revival of Lillian Hellman's The Little Foxes and was nominated for a best actress Tony Award.

She returned to Broadway in 1983 as producer and star of Noel Coward's Private Lives opposite her former husband, Richard Burton. She also produced The Corn Is Green that year.

Known more as a film actress, Elizabeth brought to the screen stage classics such as Tennessee William's Cat On A Hot Tin Roof.
