Matthew Broderick Seems DistractedJosh Loposer
Coming back to work after having twins can be tough, just ask Matthew Broderick. After spending the last few months with his twin daughters, Matthew Broderick had a trial by fire on stage Monday and fell flat on his face. Word has it that Matt had to call for a line about 10 times during The Starry Messenger‘s preview performance. Ouch.
According to what one audience member told the NY Daily News:
“It was an overall mess. He kept apologizing under his breath after he forgot a line and everyone in the audience began to feel awkward.”
To be fair, it sounds like Broderick wasn’t the only cast member struggle with the show’s dialog (there was apparently a teleprompter in use to help actors keep the flow going). Matthew is, however, the star of the show… so it’s a little more important that he knows his stuff.
Thus, the start date of the show had been pushed back one week, to November 23rd.
I wonder if SJP has had any trouble keeping focus on the set of SATC 2. I bet it’s hard to remember your lines when your mind keeps drifting back to Tabitha and Marion.
