F. Murray Abraham Thwarts Robbery at Play Rehearsal


Last night during a rehearsal of Much Ado About Nothing at the Classic Stage Company, some unlucky malcontent sneaked into the theater's dressing rooms and attempted to rob the show's actors. Too bad he didn't see F. Murray Abraham's name on the marquee! Abraham snapped into action, scuffling backstage with the thief, who only managed to make off with Martha Plimpton's bag and another actress's wallet. Police are looking for a man with a hole in his face the size of Abraham's fist. [ArtsBeat/NYT]
