Broadway will honor Elizabeth Taylor by dimming its lights Friday.

Theater marquees will go dark at 8 p.m. for one minute in memory of the actress, who succumbed to congestive heart failure at age 79 Wednesday.
 
 
Taylor made her first Broadway appearance in the 1981 revival of Lillian Hellman's The Little Foxes, for which she was nominated for a best actress Tony.
 
 
Two years later, she returned to the stage as producer and star of Noel Coward's Private Lives opposite ex Richard Burton. That same year, she produced The Corn is Green.
 
Taylor, who was laid to rest Thursday afternoon, is best known for bringing Tennessee Williams' Cat on a Hot Tin Roof to the big screen.
