She entered the Guinness Book of World Records for Deathtrap, having not missed a single performance for the play’s 1,809 performances. She most recently appeared on Broadway in Deuce in 2007. In 2010, Seldes was honored with a Lifetime Achievement Tony Award. “Marian Seldes’ name is synonymous with theater,” said Broadway League Executive Director Charlotte St. Martin in a statement. “Her persona on the Broadway stage was as real as her genuine grace and kindness off stage. Her lovely elegance and iconic talent will be deeply missed by her family, friends and fans.” Broadway theaters will dim their lights on Wednesday, October 8 to pay tribute to Marian Seldes. The Tony winner and stage icon died on October 6 at the age of 86. Marquees will go dark for exactly one minute at 7:45 PM.center_img View Commentslast_img
