"I'm hoping that perhaps Lincoln Center will consider doing it," Martin told Playbill On-Line. Martin said that he, Hawke and LCT head Andre Bishop have discussed the possibility.

Williamstown mounted Tennessee Williams' seldom staged semi-classic this past summer. The production earned good notices, including a largely positive write-up in the New York Times.

Co-starring with Hawke in Camino were Blair Brown (The Dead), Hope Davis (The Food Chain), Kristine Nielsen (Betty's Summer Vacation), Lewis Black, Christian Camargo, Richard Easton, Jeffrey Duncan Jones, Mary Lou Rosato, John Seidman and Daniel Sunjata.

Hawke has appeared in such films as "Gattaca," "Before Sunrise" and "Reality Bites." He has occasionally returned to the theatre, starring in the National Actors Theatre's production of The Seagull and Steppenwolf Theatre Company's staging of Buried Child.

Williams often called Camino Real his favorite play. The drama is currently on view at Hartford Stage, in a mounting featuring Betty Buckley and Rip Torn. --By Robert Simonson
