During the May 7 performance, Moore — best known for his work in several James Bond films — collapsed onstage. He did, however, manage to finish the show after an offstage break. Currently in stable condition, Moore is being treated in a Manhattan hospital for respiratory problems.
Moore's highly individual acting technique — in which the raising of an eyebrow speaks volumes — used to be caricatured on the “Spitting Image” television series, but he has a style and charisma that have earned him a loyal following from his early British television series “Ivanhoe” and “The Saint” through to his international stardom as James Bond.
The Play What I Wrote makes much of having a surprise guest star in the spoof television play that is performed in the later part of the show.
