Lights To Dim On Broadway For Malden

The lights of New York's theatre district will be dimmed on Thursday night (02Jul09) to honour Oscar winner KARL MALDEN, who died on Wednesday (01Jul09).
The 97 year old had a long affiliation with the Broadway stage - he made his Big Apple stage debut in 1937 and struck up a theatrical partnership with legendary director Elia Kazan, who cast Malden in a host of successful New York shows.
Malden starred in more than 20 productions, including Arthur Miller's All My Sons and Tennessee Williams' A Streetcar Named Desire opposite Marlon Brando.
And now Broadway bosses are to pay their last respects to the late star.
Charlotte St. Martin, Executive Director of The Broadway League, says, "Karl Malden's performances in some of Broadway's most legendary original productions in the 1930s, '40s and '50s showcased his talent and set a standard for excellence on stage.
"He made a lasting impact on Broadway and in other mediums throughout his career that will continue to live on."
