Gandolfini mourned

A private viewing for James Gandolfini was held Wednesday in a small northern New Jersey town near where he grew up. Mourners began arriving in the late afternoon at an invitation-only wake for family and friends at the Robert Spearing Funeral Home in Park Ridge. The 51-year-old star of ‘‘The Sopranos’’ grew up in nearby Westwood. He died last week in Italy. Broadway theaters say they’ll dim their marquee lights in memory of Gandolfini, who earned a Tony Award nomination in 2009 for his role in the award-winning ‘‘God of Carnage.’’ Gandolfini’s funeral will be held Thursday at the Cathedral Church of Saint John the Divine in New York City.
