We are as saddened as everyone about the sudden death of actor and comedian extraordinaire Robin Williams. He was one of a kind, and will truly be missed. We were reminded of his participation in last season’s Playwright: From Page to Stage, as a performer in the New York production of Bengal Tiger at the Baghdad Zoo. We give you this video extra featuring Williams rehearsing for the part of, yes, a tiger and tiger’s ghost, a role that now takes on quite a bit of added poignancy.
