LONDON - Hollywood actor Robin Williams is set to make his Broadway debut in Rajiv Joseph’s “Bengal Tiger at Baghdad Zoo” where he will play a role of Bengal tiger.
The play is about a tiger held captive in the Iraqi capital’s zoo analysing two US marines.
“It just hit me hard, it was so powerful. I read it, and I was going, ‘I’m in. I can come into it and create it from the ground up. And I’m hairy enough to be a tiger, so that’s good,” femalefirst.co.uk quoted Robin as saying.
“Most of the time most of the characters are, to be blunt, ghosts. I mean, I don’t want to spoil it but right off the bat, you’re in Iraq, it’s all these ghosts wondering around, talking and gaining more consciousness as they continue through the play,” he said.
