Neeson and Redgrave Attend Broadway Tribute to Natasha
Two days after her tragic death, Broadway joined in mourning one of its own—Tony award- winning actress Natasha Richardson.
In tribute to her passing, caused by blunt head trauma during a skiing accident in Canada, all theatre marquees lining New York City’s famed theater district dimmed their lights.
Husband Liam Neeson attended, as well as Richardson’s mother, legendary actress Vanessa Redgrave, and sister Nip/Tuck actress Joley Richardson.
Theater mainstays like Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick gave emotional greetings to Neeson, as well as Brothers & Sisters actor Ron Rifkin.
Parker in particular seemed swept up in grief, embracing Liam and sharing a few works (view a video of the exchange here, from People magazine).
Afterwards Neeson headed into the NYC streets with a male pal, mentioned he planned to stop at a nearby pub.
