When you’re Al Pacino, who needs consistency?
Critiquing the star’s opening-night perf as Herod in “Salome,” his director Estelle Parsons offered a rave afterward at the Whiskey party. “He was totally different tonight than he has been,” she said.
Apparently, this is a good thing.
“You never know what’s going to happen next,” said his co-star Dianne Wiest.
Al agreed. “We just keep re-creating it.”
Up next, Parsons and Pacino promised a staging of their long-gestating “Oedipus Rex.” She talked up a preem at possibly the Daryl Roth Theater, SUNY Purchase or St. Ann’s Warehouse in Brooklyn. He said, “No more than four or five performances a week.”
