Many will question the untimely death of one of our most beloved comedians and actors, Robin Williams. Here at the Broadway Blog we’d like to celebrate a career that spanned decades and brought not only laughter, but also a wide range of emotions to fans around the world.
Most know Williams for his film work in such iconic movies as The World According to Garp, Good Morning, Vietnam, Dead Poets Society, and Good Will Hunting (for which he won an Oscar). Williams also appeared on Broadway twice: as a stand-up act in 2002 and more recently in the 2011 production of Bengal Tiger at the Baghdad Zoo (2011). “How much more can you give?” Williams told The New York Times. “Other than, literally, open-heart surgery onstage? Not much. But the only cure you have right now is the honesty of going, this is who you are. I know who I am.”
