John Lithgow's a Serial Lunch Dater
John Lithgow is a man after our own hearts. Or should that be stomachs? Anyway, the Tony winner, soon to be seen in A Delicate Balance with the aforementioned Ms. Close, believes that “rehearsing...is only part of the process. Lunch is big too.” Lithgow, who is currently working on King Lear, wrote in The New York Times how he has taken to lunching with “each actor I have a particularly strong relationship” in the play, including co-star Annette Bening. The result? “…is it just my imagination, or have our scenes together begun to take on a depth they didn’t have before? Who knows?" We can't wait to see the results!
