Frosted about ‘Frozen’ curtain call

O'Byrne, Kurtz practice American cruelty on scribe Lavery

It sure looked like a surprise curtain call.

Holding no fewer than three bouquets, Brian F. O’Byrne and Swoosie Kurtz called Bryony Lavery to the Circle in the Square stage Wednesday night to take a bow for her Broadway debut play, “Frozen.”

Afterward at Ruth’s Steakhouse, the Brit called it “a piece of American cruelty. (Director) Doug Hughes and I decided beforehand that it was inappropriate for us to take a curtain call.”

So much for tradition.

“I’m calling my lawyers tomorrow,” laughed Lavery.
