Straying raccoon distracts Anne Hathaway’s performanceJune 13th, 2009 - 3:26 pm ICT by IANS
London, June 13 (IANS) A raccoon that was wandering on stage broke the audience into laughter and distracted the performance of Hollywood actress Anne Hathaway.
The star was performing the William Shakespeare play at the Delacorte Theatre in New York’s Central Park, and has won rave reviews for her portrayal of Viola, a girl who disguises herself as a man called Cesario.
But as the actress battled her way through the dramatic script during a recent performance, the audience began chuckling and pointing much to Hathaway’s confusion and distraction, reported femalefirst.co.uk.
It was only later that “The Devil Wears Prada” actress was told the reason for the revellers’ amusement - a stray raccoon.
“She and Audra McDonald were doing the first act when it (raccoon) just wandered onstage,” said a source.
“The audience started laughing and gasping, and it wasn’t a funny scene,” added the source.
