Update on Richard Easton

The Canadian Press reports a recovery.
NEW YORK (AP) - The Tony-award winning actor Richard Easton was recuperating at a hospital Thursday after he collapsed on stage during a preview performance of the Broadway play "The Coast of Utopia."

The Montreal-born actor, 73, fainted Wednesday at Lincoln Center's Vivian Beaumont Theater while making a dramatic exit near the end of the first act of Tom Stoppard's 2002 trilogy.

The show was halted as Easton's co-star, Ethan Hawke, asked for help from any doctors in the audience.

Easton was hospitalized, but appeared to recover quickly, said the theatre's spokesman, Philip Rinaldi.
