NEW YORK (AP) - The lights on Broadway will be dimmed in honor of the late Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Lanford Wilson.

The Broadway League says the theater marquees will go dark at 8 p.m. Wednesday for one minute in tribute to Wilson, who wrote or produced dozens of plays over four decades.

Wilson, who died Thursday, won the Pulitzer in 1980 for “Talley’s Folly” and he was nominated for Tony Awards for “Angels Fall,” “Fifth of July” and “Talley’s Folly.”

Wilson’s “The Hot l Baltimore” also won the New York Drama Critics’ Circle Award, the Outer Critics Circle Award and an Obie Award. He was one of the founding members of the Circle Repertory Company.
