People reports that Philip Seymour Hoffman was remembered with a candlelight vigil and a dimming of Broadway's marquee lights. It was held last night at the LAByrinth Theatre Company, which Hoffman had been a member of. At 7:45 PM, the lights were turned off for a minute. There was a crowd of around 200 people.
LAByrinth member and Jesuit priest Reverend Jim Martin said: "We come together tonight in a spirit of terrible mourning and incredible loss. But we also come together to celebrate a remarkable life.""
Playwright and actor Eric Bogosian, a fellow member, added: "Courage was his forte, always. Phil set his bar on the highest rung, on a rung above the highest rung. He pushed himself relentlessly until finally his efforts virtually redefined the very endeavor we call acting. That's what he wanted. He wanted to rock the world."
