It’s hardly the way you’d want to mark the end of your West End debut season. Hollywood’s Christian Slater was assaulted when exiting the Gielgud Theatre on Friday, the second to last night of his oft-extended run in One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest. According to media reports, Slater was not injured, though the clothing of one of his companions was slashed during the knife attack. That unfortunate incident aside, it looks like Slater’s London venture will end on a positive note. He’s currently leading the Best Actor field in Whatsonstage.com’s audience-judged Theatregoers’ Choice Awards. Voting ends on Monday 31 January 2005, with winners announced on Tuesday 1 February (click here to vote now).
