Theatre marquees in New York dimmed their lights at 7pm on Tuesday as a mark of respect to the actress, who died on Friday at the age of 66 following a battle with leukaemia.
In a statement posted by Broadway World, Charlotte St. Martin, the executive director of the Broadway League, said: "Thanks to the talents of Ms Clayburgh, her husband David Rabe and daughter Lily Rabe, this family has had significant impact on Broadway, both past and present.
"We are grateful for the memories of her performances, and our thoughts are with her family and friends."
The League's chairman Paul Libin added: "Jill Clayburgh was a versatile and talented actress... Her performances on Broadway and in film and television will be missed by many of us who have been fans of hers for many years.
"The Broadway community mourns her loss and extends our sympathies to her family."
