That old photo again – but plenty of #LLLPlay images, too.
I didn’t realize before that this montage gives me a better view of #RichardArmitage during the cake eating scene than I had during the three performances I attended. Also, not sure I buy that he hasn’t this kind of fun and laughing while working before based on his Berlin Station interviews and tweets.
An excerpt about the stage door experience, from the actor’s point of view:
I’d imagine you get a lot of action at the stage door. Is that something you enjoy or have just learned to deal with at this point in your career?
Yeah, you do learn to deal with it. [Laughs] I always say to myself, whatever it takes to get someone to buy a ticket to come to the theater. Audiences are growing older and we’re hoping to get younger people into the theater, so whatever it takes. If people come to see the show, great. If they’re less bothered about the show and more bothered about the selfie at the stage door, it doesn’t matter to me as long as they’re coming. You know, we’ve had people come from far and wide, which is great. It sort of helps the Roundabout creative and those programs and the global marketplace. Everyone always comes through New York, it’s a great destination. If on their whistle stop tour of the Empire State Building and then seeing something at the Roundabout Theatre becomes part of the tour, then I think that’s a good thing.
