West End theatres will dim their lights for two minutes at 7pm tonight (December 8), in memory of actor Sir Antony Sher, whose death was announced on Friday.
A double Olivier Award winner, Sher had a prolific stage and screen career, including a long association with the Royal Shakespeare Company (RSC).
His final stage appearances included the Pinter at the Pinter season, and John Kani’s play Kunene and the King.
RSC Executive Director Catherine Mallyon said Sher was deeply loved and hugely admired by many colleagues and a ground-breaking role model for young actors.
"It is impossible to comprehend that he is no longer with us. We will ensure friends far and wide have the chance to share tributes and memories."
