Kevin Kline may do Shakespeare again
NEW YORK, June 23 (UPI) -- Actor Kevin Kline took part in a staged reading of Shakespeare's "King Lear" at the Public Theater in New York in preparation for possibly doing the play.
The reading wasn't public, only a handful of Kline's friends and Public Theater staffers saw Kline read, but they said the actor was excellent, the New York Post reported Friday.
"They did it with scripts, but he'd obviously memorized a lot of it," Said one onlooker. "It was done just to see if Kevin was comfortable in the part. I'd say he was."
Kline has done a number of Shakespeare plays for the Public Theater, including "Measure for Measure," "Much Ado About Nothing," "Richard III" and two productions of "Hamlet."
