Broadway to honor Jack Klugman and Charles Durning

The theater community will honor actors Jack Klugman and Charles Durning by dimming Broadway's lights in back-to-back memorials.
The marquees at all Broadway theaters will go dark for one minute at 8 p.m. Thursday in honor of Durning, who died Monday at 89. Durning played several important Broadway roles, including in a 1990 revival of "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof," David Rabe's "Boom Boom Room" and "Inherit the Wind" in 1996.
On Friday, the 40 Broadway marquees will go dark at 8 p.m. for Klugman, who also died Monday at 90. Klugman earned a Tony Award nomination for "Gypsy" in 1960, and his Broadway roles included parts in "I'm Not Rappaport" and "The Sunshine Boys."
