Back in 1982, Wilton resident Christopher Walken played Hamlet at the American Shakespeare Theatre, a gorgeous building that was once a centerpiece of Stratford and has been inexcusably shuttered since the late '80s or so. Walken has been one of the more successful actors of our time, having appeared in a vast array of disparate successful and/or beloved movies including Annie Hall, The Deer Hunter, Pulp Fiction, True Romance, Catch Me If You Can, and about 100 more (literally). He'll return to Stratford on Sunday night to talk about his life and career at the Scottish Rite Theater (formerly the Stratford Movie Theater) to benefit the Shakespeare Theatre, the Stratford Arts Commission and the Stratford Center for the Arts.
The Scottish Rite Theater, 2422 Main St., Stratford, Sun., Feb. 17, 12 p.m. $25, $50 for V.I.P. (203) 572-8177.
