Much Ado About Salieri

…but even more to do with  F. Murray Abraham, who foiled a backstage robbery.  Way to go, F. Murray!  Even though Mozart would have done it just a tad more memorably.

Last night during a rehearsal of Much Ado About Nothing at the Classic Stage Company, some unlucky malcontent sneaked into the theater’s dressing rooms and attempted to rob the show’s actors. Too bad he didn’t see F. Murray Abraham’s name on the marquee! Abraham snapped into action, scuffling backstage with the thief, who only managed to make off with Martha Plimpton’s bag and another actress’s wallet. Police are looking for a man with a hole in his face the size of Abraham’s fist.
