Pacino back in the Wilde

Thesp reprises role in 'Salome'

Al Pacino will reprise his Broadway perf in Oscar Wilde’s “Salome” at the Wadsworth Theater April 14-May 14.

Estelle Parsons again directs the show’s pared-down, staged-reading format, with original music by Yukio Tsuji.

Pacino plays King Herod in Wilde’s poetic version of the biblical tale that climaxes in the Dance of the Seven Veils. Kevin Anderson (“Brooklyn”) portrays John the Baptist, played by David Strathairn on Broadway, and Jessica Chastain takes over the title role from Marisa Tomei.

Queen Herodias, the part played by Dianne Wiest in the Broadway incarnation, has not yet been cast.

Parsons and Pacino developed their “Salome” during a two-year process that included an engagement at St. Ann’s Warehouse in Brooklyn in November 2002 and a stint in Poughkeepsie, N.Y., just prior to the Rialto run in April 2003.

West Coast engagement is produced by Robert Fox, Daryl Roth and Amy Nederlander, who put up the Gotham run.
