William Hurt keeps pledge to return to Manitoba Theatre Centre stage
Winnipeg -- Oscar-winner and recent nominee William Hurt promised three years ago he would return to perform at Manitoba Theatre Centre, and he has kept his word.
The Hollywood actor has agreed to play Prospero in Shakespeare's The Tempest at MTC next fall.
Hurt, 55, made his Canadian stage debut three years ago as the Bard's Richard III. After the run, Hurt sent MTC artistic director Steven Schipper a bouquet of flowers with a card that read: 'Dear, Steven, March, 2007, See ya, Love, William.'"
