• The Mad King

    10.17.11

    Geoffrey Rush, one of Australia's most famous and well-respected actors, is best known around the world for his roles in Pirates of the Carribean, Elizabeth, and The King's Speech. But Geoffrey Rush has also had a stella stage career, which is being honored with an exhibition "The Mad King: Geoffrey Rush On Stage" at the Performing Arts Collection in Melbourne, Australia. This exhibit is a collection of photographs, costumes and memorabilia from Rush's more notable roles. The actor himself asked Hugh Hartshorne to contribute the images of Rush as King Berenger in Exit the King taken at the Ethel Barrymore Theatre in New York in 2009--for which he won a TONY award!-- and Diary of a Madman that Hugh shot at the Belvoir Theatre earlier that year. A must-see for anyone down under!
