Lights were dimmed for one minute Thursday night in honor of Richardson, who died Wednesday from bleeding in her skull caused by a fall on a ski slope. Her death has been ruled an accident.

A family spokesman says he has no information about funeral arrangements.

Sam Mendes, who directed the 1998 revival of "Cabaret," says "it defies belief that this gifted, brave, tenacious, wonderful woman is gone."

Broadway League Executive Director Charlotte St. Martin calls Richardson "one of our finest young actresses."
