Tom Hanks Ad-Libs Shakespeare After Theatergoer Falls Ill

posted by scotty -

The show must goeth on! That's what Tom Hanks decided last week when a performance of Henry IV at the Shakespeare Center of Los Angeles was interrupted by a patron experiencing a medical emergency. Mashable reports that several minutes after the play was stopped so the theatergoer could receive assistance, Hanks sensed the audience growing restless and bounded onstage to entertain them. "God has decided this play needed a second intermission!" cried Hanks, who stars in the play's title role. He also jokingly mocked the "scurvy rogues that stood up from their seats and tore apart their tickets" as "an insult to all actors and Shakespeare himself!" An attendee who shared video from Hanks' improv act also tweeted, "Mr. Hanks was very entertaining and the med patient was okay."
