Offstage-Backstage -Their Dialogue

Kline_kevin_cyranoAll week long, I kept seeing Kevin Kline around New York’s favorite places. He was in great spirits about playing Cyrano–and about the company at the Richard Rodgers theater where Edmond Rostand’s classic “Cyrano de Bergerac” made its bow last Thursday night. “I love my nose,” he laughed. “While most actors are busy trying to get smaller noses–I’m having a great time enlarging mine,” he laughed.

There’s no question the role is a physical workout — I laughed as he ordered a second helping of his main course when lunching at Michael’s with his “De-Lovely” producer Irwin Winkler — and talking another movie together. We then saw him having a terrif dinner with his family and Elio’s. And, finally, we caught his official bow at the Richard Rodgers theater where he received a prolonged standing ovation. He set the show off to a rollicking start in the opening scene displaying his Errol Flynn-like swordsmanship and segued into the tragic tale’s finale. The first nighters–including the James Nederlander family made its way up to Broadway and party at the Spotlight.
