The Associated Press is reporting that the lights on Broadway will be dimmed for one minute at 8 p.m. Friday night to honor the memory of Gore Vidal. Vidal died Tuesday at his home in Los Angeles.
A revival of his prize-winning 1960 play, “The Best Man,” is currently enjoying a successful run at New York’s Schoenfeld Theatre.
Vidal had a prolific career, with 24 novels, five plays, many screenplays and more than 200 essays to his credit. The Boston Globe called him “our greatest living man of letters.”
