Daniel Craig's Broadway Play Disrupted for Technical Difficulty

Daniel Craig's Broadway Play Disrupted for Technical Difficulty

Daniel Craig bundles up on a chilly morning while heading to the gym on Monday (December 2) in the East Village neighborhood of New York City.

The 45-year-old actor is currently starring alongside his wife Rachel Weisz in the Broadway play Betrayal and the show faced some technical difficulties over the weekend.

“A black screen came down. After 15 minutes, Craig and the rest of the cast came out, and said they were having problems with the stage, but they were going to ‘give it a shot,’ and continue with the performance. They started to applause, but between each scene, the curtain came down, and the set was manually changed, which took a lot of time. By 9:30 p.m., they had only got through a few more scenes, and — while the actors made a valiant attempt to continue — some in the audience became restless and left,” an audience member told NY Post’s Page Six.

“The show’s automation failed after Scene 2, into Scene 3, necessitating manual set changes for the rest of the performance,” the show’s rep confirmed. “Of the 1,100 people in the sold-out audience, there were less than 10 requests for refunds or exchanges. There was a 15-minute pause following the breakdown during which the cast made the decision to continue the performance. They continued on brilliantly, and each scene change received a round of applause. They finished at 10:26 p.m., about 40 minutes later than usual. After an immediate standing ovation, Daniel Craig thanked the audience for their patience and the show’s crew for their efforts to ensure the show would go on.”

That accident deepened their love and built trust, I think.

Great! The actors’ sense of unity with the audience seemed to add even greater depth to their performance.

Tact is his best point.

Daniel knows how to bundle up in tons of winter clothes for warmth. lol He’s still hot!

Met Daniel. He’s a gentleman, he’s smart, funny, incredibly gorgeous, silly, and mature. Great guy!

Praising his act of responding quickly and smartly. It made emotion, atmosphere, etc. more excited.

What are you losers looking at? He looks putrid! He has zero class, curses all the time, and is ugly as sin. You ladies need your eyes or you judgment adjusted. Wake up.

@Fangalno1: Ditto! his butt is out of this world gorgeous.
I could never get used to his beauty.

I can’t imagine anybody really cared about the disruptions, sexiest man alive could disrupt me anytime.

You ladies need corrective lenses and psychiatric help unless those posts are from Rachel Wiesz. Sick lot out there to deem this neanderthal a hunk. Feh.

Naomie Harris talks the future of Bond
Exclusive: “Skyfall is one part of a continuing story”
Dec 7th 2013 By Total Film
In issue 214 of Total Film magazine, Bond’s brand new Miss Moneypenny, Naomie Harris, drops some tantalising hints about the future of 007.

Inside the issue – which is available for just £1.99 on your iPad, Harris reveals that her first Bond film, Skyfall, won’t necessarily be her last, adding that Bond 24 could pick up threads left hanging by Skyfall.

“I feel like Skyfall is one part of a continuing story,” the 37-year-old Brit says. “It needs completing and it needs the same storyteller.”

With Sam Mendes on board to direct Bond 24, it looks like Harris should get her wish. Meanwhile, she’s excited at the prospect of working with Daniel Craig again.

“I really got on with Daniel,” she smiles. “It would be strange if someone else took the role. He’s a brilliant Bond for our times. And I’m so relieved [about Mendes returning]. He chose me and had a vision for my character.

“I’d feel really weird working for someone who hadn’t chosen me and didn’t have that vision. I just want him to see it through.”

Bond 24 opens in the UK on 23 October 2015.
