News   Fortune's Fool Asked to Play London in Fall Frank Langella, who won the 2002 Tony Award for Best Featured Performance in a Play for Fortune's Fool, said the Mike Poulton adaptation of the Turgenev work may bow in London this fall.

Frank Langella, who won the 2002 Tony Award for Best Featured Performance in a Play for Fortune's Fool, said the Mike Poulton adaptation of the Turgenev work may bow in London this fall.

"We've been asked to do it in London, Alan Bates and I," he said in the Tony press room. "We're discussing it. The producer Duncan Weldon would do it, possibly at the Haymarket Theatre this coming fall. That would be great if that could happen. I'm very excited about it."

Langella's co-star, Alan Bates, is British.

"I love playing an 'infamous fatuous fop,'" added Langella of his flamboyant role in Fool. "I love everything about my character. And it's never been seen before, so no one could say 'Ian McKellen played it better 10 years ago.'"
