On Twitter, Kerry Butler, who is currently in previews in THE BEST MEN, had this to say @KerryButlerNyc
Last night's preview went great!! Although someone in the audience suffered from a seizure in the middle of first act.
James Earl Jones was suddenly yelling is there a doctor in the house? We stopped the show for half an hour.
And they said the audience member should be fine.
The audience was amazing! They were completely back in the show when we started again.
Here are a few of my favorite things that have happened in our first week of previews on The Best Man:
Having part of my wig fall off at Eric mcCormick's feet, and him saying "Mabel fix your face...and your hair."
Having a jam session with micheal mckean. He's such a great musician, already taught me two songs! Maybe we will start the best man band.
Watching Jefferson Mays prepare to go on stage is almost as entertaining as watching him perform.
John Larroquette accidentally broke two light fixtures on set, and improvised something about him and alice being in such close quarters.
Angela broke a glass and I was picking up glass during our tea scene.
I couldn't find my shoes one show.People have threatened to hide them on me so I have to search for them during the scene- like Waldo
Lots of Stuff for one week, btw the person who had the seizure is fine. Sent a nice note to us, and said he will be back soon.
A play about power, ambition, political secrets, ruthlessness and the race for the presidency, Gore Vidal’s THE BEST MAN is set at the national convention where two candidates are vying for their party’s nomination during the primary season. It’s an inside look at the dirt-digging, double-dealing, triple-crossing chicanery of presidential electioneering and what could be more fun in a presidential campaign season than these theatrical fireworks.
