nytimes.com: Philip Seymour Hoffman, Actor of Depth, Dies at 46
“Philip Seymour Hoffman, perhaps the most ambitious and widely admired American actor of his generation, who gave three-dimensional nuance to a wide range of sidekicks, villains and leading men on screen and embraced some of the theater’s most burdensome roles on Broadway, died on Sunday at an apartment in Greenwich Village he was renting as an office. He was 46.” Click here to read the full article.
Labyrinth Theater Company is hosting a community prayer and candlelight vigil on Wednesday, February 5th at 6:30pm in the courtyard of the Bank Street Theater (located at 155 Bank Street) to honor Philip Seymour Hoffman. The prayer will be lead by Labyrinth Company member Fr. Jim Martin.
In an email from Labyrinth Theater Company, Danny Feldman, Labyrinth’s Managing Director writes, “We are overwhelmed and touched by the outpouring of support we’ve received over the past few days. All of us at Labyrinth are heartbroken by the loss of our beloved friend, Company Member, and former Artistic Director, Philip Seymour Hoffman. He was a friend, leader, and an extraordinary artist whose lasting impact on Labyrinth will never be forgotten.
Plans for a memorial ceremony to honor Phil and his legacy will be announced in the coming days.
Thank you again for your kind words, thoughts, and prayers.”
