Liam Neeson Attends Dimming of Lights on Broadway

03/20/2009 at 02:00 PM EDT



As Broadway paid tribute to Natasha Richardson Thursday night with a symbolic one-minute dimming of its marquees, the late actress's husband, Liam Neeson, her mother, Vanessa Redgrave, and her sister, Joely Richardson, were comforted by Sarah Jessica Parker and husband Matthew Broderick as well as fellow actor Ron Rifkin.

The Tony-winning Richardson, 45, died Wednesday from internal bleeding caused by the fall she took on a ski slope in Canada.

Richardson's family has requested that donations be made in her name to the amfAR foundation for AIDS research, according to family spokesman Alan Nierob, the Associated Press reports.

Natasha Richardson, whose father, Oscar-wining Tom Jones director Tony Richardson, died of complications from the disease in 1991, was a longtime supporter of the charity and had served on its board of trustees since 2006.
