Getting ahead for ‘Salome’

Pacino starrer bows in Brentwood

WHAT: Opening night of Oscar Wilde’s “Salome,” starring Al Pacino, on April 27.

WHERE: Brentwood’s Wadsworth Theater with an after-party at Tanino’s Restaurant in Westwood.

WHO: Pacino; fellow cast members Kevin Anderson, Jessica Chastain and Roxanne Hart; director Estelle Parsons; plus producers Amy Nederlander and Robert Fox

HEAD’S UP: While Pacino had said a staged reading allows the audience to connect with a piece, Anderson, who plays Jokanaan (John the Baptist, whose head is cut off in the perf), said he took the role partly because of “the chance to work with Al. Actually there was some talk about doing it a long time ago, but it kind of went over my head.”
