Speed-the-Plow: No, Raúl Esparza Did Not Sing During Another Performance

So, Jeremy Piven, who is in the revival of Speed-the-Plow with Raúl Esparza and Elizabeth Moss, has mercury poisoning. This is forcing him to leave the show for the rest of the run. (Here’s the article from Variety, which is worth reading for the quote from David Mamet)

Well, this means that a replacement was needed, and two have been found. Norbert Leo Butz is taking over the role from Dec. 23 until Jan. 11, and then William H. Macy will finish out the run. (Article from Playbill)

So, let’s hope that goes well.
