Broadway theaters will dim their marquee lights Wednesday night in memory of Philip Seymour Hoffman, the movie and theater star who earned three Tony Award nominations.

The Broadway League said Monday the lights will be dimmed for one minute starting at 7:45 p.m. Eastern time (0045 GMT).

Hoffman made his Broadway debut in Sam Shepard’s “True West” with John C. Reilly in 2000 and followed it up three years later with Eugene O’Neill’s “Long Day’s Journey Into Night” with Brian Dennehy and Vanessa Redgrave. In 2012, he played a powerful Willy Loman in “Death of a Salesman” by Arthur Miller under the direction of Mike Nichols.

Each time he earned a Tony nod.
