The actors in Edward Albee‘s Broadway revival of “Seascape” at Lincoln Center must contend with a sand-dune set that’s on a pretty steep angle. “I have sneakers with cleats on them,” said George Grizzard at the show’s opening night party at Tavern on the Green Nov. 21.
At least Grizzard and Frances Sternhagen get to play humans. The show’s two other thesps, Frederick Weller and Elizabeth Marvel, portray lizards, clambering around in bright green costumes with big tails.
When preparing for his role, Weller didn’t like observing iguanas. They proved too stationary. “I wound up watching a garden variety lizard on a balcony in South Carolina,” he said. “He was giving me all the lizard moves. I think he was showing off.”
