Pacino Can't Resist a London Run for Arturo???
Date: 25 March 2003
Also reported in Variety is the possibility of a London season for the recent New York revival of Bertolt Brecht's 1958 political parody, The Resistible Rise of Arturo Ui, starring Oscar winner Al Pacino in the title role. The National Actors Theater production, directed by Theatre de Complicite's Simon McBurney, was a sell-out last autumn off-Broadway, where it featured fellow Hollywood stars like Billy Crudup and Henry Goodman. Variety tips the gangster farce, which parodies Hitler's rise to power, for a run at the National's Lyttelton Theatre in 2004. Pacino was last seen in the West End in David Mamet's American Buffalo some two decades ago, although he's also recently been rumoured to possibly be heading back to London with the Actors Studio production of Salome, which opens on Broadway next month after its run last year in a Brooklyn warehouse (See The Goss, 31 Oct 2002).
