Question and answer
Why is the tiger the main character of Bengal Tiger at the Baghdad Zoo?
Williams has chosen a role that plays to his strength. The tiger is a wiseacre; many of his lines are as wickedly funny as Jon Stewart’s on a good night. [ Yet Williams, who is, after all, a Juilliard-trained actor and an Oscar winner, doesn’t go crazy with them but stays in character (click here to read an interview with him). But despite Williams’ above-the-title billing and final bow at the curtain call, the tiger isn’t the main character in the play. That role actually belongs to the interpreter, who has been so callously used by both the Hussein family and the American occupiers that
he eventually resorts to violence himself. Moayed brings an elegant intensity to the role and I'm glad he's been recognized for it but it’s not enough. Perhaps everyone involved was just too conscious of the gravity of the subject. Whatever the reason, Bengal Tiger at the Baghdad Zoo ends up as a tiger chasing its own tail. ]
