Stoppard Play Opening Delayed For Actor
The opening of the first part of Tom Stoppard's trilogy "The Coast of Utopia" has been delayed from November 5 to November 27 to accomodate the actor Richard Easton. He collapsed on stage during previews and I had linked to an article for the rather farcical detail that when they asked if there was a doctor in the house (at the posh Lincoln Center) some 20 people swarmed the stage. I saw the entire trilogy in London and if you want to tackle it, I strongly recommend seeing them at the end of the run as close together as possible. The daylong marathon might be too much for some, but it definitely benefits from being seen as a whole.
