Paltrow Plans Prince-ly Performance
Paltrow and British actor Joseph Fiennes, who co-starred five years ago in the hit 1998 film "Shakespeare in Love," will perform for Prince Charles next week in a benefit for the Prince's Trust, Reuters reports.
The big-screen duo will stage the "Romeo and Juliet" balcony scene at the Globe in London – a replica of the Elizabethan venue where Shakespeare's works were originally staged. The pair will be joined onstage by other actors, also performing Shakespearean excerpts; the program includes performances by Paul Scofield and Diana Rigg, among others.
In the critically acclaimed film, Fiennes played Shakespeare himself; Paltrow won an Oscar for her performance as the wealthy Viola de Lesseps, a love interest who helps the playwright conquer writer's block.
At Monday's show, audience members will pay ticket prices ranging from roughly $31 to almost $480. Proceeds will benefit the Prince's Trust, a charity founded by Prince Charles that helps disadvantaged youth.
