It was a bittersweet evening for Broadway at the opening of the revival of West Side Story at the Palace Theater in NYC last night. Earlier in the night, the lights of the Great White Way had dimmed to honor the passing of one of its brightest stars, Natasha Richardson.

Some of the celebrity guests took the moment to express their sadness and reflect upon the actress’s life on stage.

Patrick Wilson, a Broadway vet who starred on screen with Natasha in 2007’s Evening talked to OK! about his feelings of grief.

“It’s an unexplainable, tragic, senseless loss. It’s just a time for her family to reflect and our prayers go out to her whole family,” he shared.

Kathleen Turner, who like Natasha, has worked both on stage and on film was trying to make sense of the tragedy.

“It’s just so damn shocking!” she told OK!, “She’s so young and so good and so sweet. I liked her tremendously. And I know that they’ll [her family] handle as best they can, I feel sorry they have to at all.”

Cheyenne Jackson, who was last seen on stage in Xanadu, told OK! how he had worked with Natasha to help others.

“I worked with amfAR a lot and she was tireless in her work with amfAR for people living with HIV,” he remembered. “There’s really no words. We’re just walking to our play in the morning, it’s a sunny day and her life is gone. It’s very hard. It’s perspective. It’s unbelievably tragic.”

Zack Snyder confirmed again that there will be a limited theatrical release of an extended director’s cut of Watchmen in July, and revealed that the opening title montage featured two deleted shots that may appear on a future Blu-ray or DVD, speaking in a panel at WonderCon in San Francisco on Saturday. (Spoilers ahead!)

The deleted shots from the title sequence include one of Edward Blake/the Comedian raising the flag on Iwo Jima in World War II and a shot of the inauguration of Richard Nixon. “They’ll be somewhere,” Snyder said, referring to future iterations of the movie that may appear on home video.

The opening title sequence is a montage of scenes that establish the 1985 alternate universe New York of Watchmen, based in part on iconic images from art and popular culture, including a Last Supper-style retirement party for Sally Jupiter (Carla Gugino) and the assassination of John F. Kennedy by Edward Blake/the Comedian (Jeffrey Dean Morgan).

As for the three-hour 10-minute director’s cut, Snyder said that it would restore a sequence of Hollis Mason’s death as well as “other bits and bobs … a whole lot more naked blueness in it, too.” Snyder got notes from Warner Brothers to cut some of the shots of Dr. Manhattan’s blue, uh, manhood, as well as trim some of the film’s graphic violence for the two-hour 37-minute theatrical release, which he agreed to “to be fair,” he said.

As part of the WonderCon panel, Snyder also screened the opening portion of the movie, starting with the death of Blake, the title montage and Rorschach’s initial investigation of Blake’s death, right up to his conversation with Dan Dreiberg (Patrick Wilson) in the owl cave.

Snyder also addressed the question of a sequel again and denied again that he would have anything to do with one, whether the studio goes ahead or not. “It’s a surprising question to me, because to me it seems impossible to even talk about, because it’s like a sequel to Moby Dick or something,” Snyder said. Watchmen opens March 6.
