    Broadway theaters will dim their lights Friday night in honor of Debbie Reynolds and Carrie Fisher, the mother-and-daughter actresses who died one day apart last week.

    Fisher died Dec. 27 after having a heart attack on a flight the week prior, and her mother Reynolds died the next day of a stroke. 

    Theaters will dim their marquees for one minute on Friday at 7:45 p.m., the traditional sign of respect from the Broadway community for a notable passing. 

    Both debuted on Broadway in 1973 in the musical comedy "Irene," for which Reynolds received a Tony nomination.
