Tony Award-winning actor Richard Easton was recuperating at a hospital Thursday after he collapsed on stage during a preview performance of the Broadway play "The Coast of Utopia." Easton, 73, fainted on Wednesday at Lincoln Center's Vivian Beaumont Theater while making a dramatic exit near the end of the first act of Tom Stoppard's 2002 trilogy. The show was halted as Easton's costar, Ethan Hawke, asked for help from any doctors in the audience.

In this season of academy accolades, it's easy to focus on the glitterati, the actors whose faces we know, whose names top the credits, who get back-end deals with the studios. We rarely stop to consider anyone else on screen. But those big-name nominees depend on their compatriots, even those with just a line or two in their movies, to help create the fictional world in which the stars can shine bright.

There was a time when the finest of actors led a gypsy life. They traveled from job to job, not in search of fortune--which had little commerce with the acting profession before television and film and Broadway mega-hits--but in pursuit of a dream for greater and greater parts. At 57, Richard Easton, "floating and on my lonesome," still leads just such a life.

"Someone Who'll Watch Over Me," Frank McGuinness' 1992 Broadway play about a British professor, Irish journalist and American doctor held hostage in a Beirut basement, is the ultimate actors' showcase.

The Old Globe Theatre is beginning its summer season with an end-of-summer staging of "As You Like It." Set in the alfresco Lowell Davies Festival Theatre, this "As You Like It" is bountiful, well-spoken and without major surprises--unless it's the fact that the production's overriding melancholy is underplayed in the one character, Jaques, where it's most needed. The hints of incipient autumn are established by David Jenkins' set.

The music by Bob James is strong, chilling, dramatic. There's an abstract massiveness to Ralph Funicello's set, modeled on Paris' Jardin des Plantes and built at rakish angles, with walkways and high ceilings. Opulent reds and golds dominate the stage against backdrops the color of dried blood. Candelabra are everywhere. The statue of a stone angel sits dead center. And suddenly, out of the floor, more candelabra. Is this "The Phantom of the Opera"? No.

The setting is an elegant terrace overlooking Boston Harbor. From inside the house come the warm light and convivial sounds of a party. Outside, the green, metal patio furniture matches the ivy on the eggshell-colored windows, and the cushions are white, never mind what it costs to clean them. Everyone has a drink. This is A.R. Gurney country.

September 14, 1993 | SYLVIE DRAKE, TIMES THEATER CRITIC EMERITUS
Don't believe the title. All is not well that supposedly ends well, but William Shakespeare isn't around for rewrites, and the staging by Sheldon Epps of his "All's Well That Ends Well" in the Old Globe's outdoor Lowell Davies Festival Theatre has more problems than just the noise from low-flying planes. This so-called comedy is infrequently done and it's easy to see why.
