While three of four people arrested amid the investigation of Philip Seymour Hoffman's death were arraigned on drug charges, the New York theater community mourned the actor with a dimming of Broadway's marquee lights and a candlelight vigil.
The vigil Wednesday night was held outside the 90-seat home of the LAByrinth Theatre Company, where Hoffman had long been a member. And at 7:45 p.m., Broadway's lights turned off for a minute.
"We come together tonight in a spirit of terrible mourning and incredible loss," the Rev. Jim Martin, a Jesuit priest and LAByrinth member, told the crowd of about 200 people who stood in a chilly drizzle. "But we also come together to celebrate a remarkable life."
