The Broadway community will honor Robin Williams by dimming marquee lights for one minute.

Williams, who took his life in his San Francisco Bay Area home this week, had been on Broadway several times, most recently as a restless tiger ghost in 2011 in "Bengal Tiger at the Baghdad Zoo."

The marquees of the Great White Way will be dimmed for one minute Wednesday at 7:45 p.m. ET.

Williams has been on stage with Steve Martin in Mike Nichols's 1988 off-Broadway version of "Waiting for Godot" and had a run of his own one-man show, "Robin Williams: Live on Broadway" in 2002.

Tributes have been pouring in following news of Williams' death.

Robin Williams' three children released statements this week opening up about how they're dealing with the loss of their father.

Funeral arrangements haven't been announced yet and final word on toxicology results is expected in a few weeks.
