Glenn Stops the Show

Meanwhile on Broadway, Glenn Close stopped the show – literally.  The scene was act one of Sunset Boulevard and she just started singing “With One Look” when she noticed someone taking a photo.  She signaled for the music director to stop and said, “Now we can have a show or we can have a photo shoot.”  Shades of LuPone, n’est çe pas?  Albeit, more ladylike.  What I find interesting is that this is eerily similar to something that happened in 1994 when Close did Sunset during the original Broadway run.  When she made her entrance down Norma Desmond’s staircase, several people took photos.  She stopped the show then, too, and said, “We can either have a press conference or continue with the show.”  Someone’s gotta write Glenn some new material.
