Frances McDormand Stops The Show, With Renee Elise Goldsberry

Micheal Musto reported a funny story from Renee Elise Goldsberry's (ex-Evangeline, ONE LIFE TO LIVE) play "Good People" last night for the Village Voice. Read it below.

At last night's performance of the Broadway play "Good People"--right at a climactic plot moment, when the audience was on the edge of their seats, waiting for information about the baby--a cell phone boldly rang in the house.

The audience gasped. The actors froze.

And the woman took the call!

Good people indeed!

"Hello? she screeched--though she would have been more accurate if she'd said, "I'm the dumbest pinhead in history!"

McDormand stopped in her tracks, put her arm around costar Renee Elise Goldsberry (above), and deadpanned, "Let's wait."

After the unwanted bit of audience business was settled and silenced, McDormand made a rewind gesture and said to Goldsberry, "OK, ask me the question again."

And they resumed the scene.
