Let's bail

Fans got a sneak preview of Meryl Streep and Kevin Kline's new play Mother Courage And Her Children earlier this week at New York City's Delacorte Theater.

The New York Post reports around 100 people of the 1,892 in the audience left early, with one witness quoted as saying, "Meryl is brilliant, but the play itself is boring, tortuous - it needs judicious cutting. A number of people left after 20 minutes. Many didn't return after intermission and then, three hours in, during a long song by Kevin Kline, they were pouring out."

The show's publicist insists no cuts will be made to the play, "The show is what it is - a long show."
