Here's How You Can Help Keep Philip Seymour Hoffman's LAByrinth Theater Company Going

Edward Norton has put together a Crowdrise fundraising campaign in order to keep the LAByrinth Theater Company going strong. Here's how you can play a part.

One of Philip Seymour Hoffman's many influences included his role as co-founder and for some time, artistic director of the LAByrinth Theater Company here in New York City. In his memory, the theater group held a moving candlelight vigil Wednesday evening. 

Edward Norton, a longtime friend of Hoffman's after working together on films such as Red Dragon and 25th Hour, started a Crowdwise fundraising campaign to help keep the LAByrinth Theater an inspiring hub for artists, as it has all these years for actors, actresses, stagehands, designers, playwrights, and directors. 

LAByrinth members include Ethan Hawke, Bobby Cannavalle, Chris Rock, Michael Shannon, and Sam Rockwell. The current artistic director is Hoffman's longtime partner, Mimi O'Donnell.
