Cherry Jones, Laila Robins To Share Old Times?

News   Cherry Jones, Laila Robins To Share Old Times? Syndicated columnist Liz Smith reported (Aug. 7) that Cherry Jones, Alec Baldwin and Laila Robins are being considered for a Broadway revival of Harold Pinter's Old Times, to be produced by Alexander Cohen.

Syndicated columnist Liz Smith reported (Aug. 7) that Cherry Jones, Alec Baldwin and Laila Robins are being considered for a Broadway revival of Harold Pinter's Old Times, to be produced by Alexander Cohen. Asked about the rumor, Cohen spokesperson David Rothenberg told Playbill On-Line (Aug. 7), "If every idea on a producer's desk went into the papers... Sure, some actually happen, but there's nothing to this. Cherry Jones has said she'd like to do it; Alec Baldwin isn't even interested... Such endless nonsense! Newspapers are more interested in gossip and celebrity than in real news and facts."

Pinter's cryptic comedy/drama concerns a married couple who play host to a female friend -- who may not be what she seems. The original Broadway production starred Robert Shaw, Mary Ure and Rosemary Harris. A public television telecast of the piece featured John Malkovich.
