Even if you find something you love a little later in life, that first love never really leaves you. This is especially true in art, for the creative expression of one’s feelings and thoughts is central to them all. Music and acting are two completely different disciplines and each requires tremendous dedication, but the core of both art forms is the same. So when Kevin Kline sat down with Interview magazine in 2017, he answered a question many actors ask about what they would do if acting wasn’t considered a profession:
“Playing the piano somewhere. Some new undiscovered music. Maybe if things weren’t so bad, I’d be in a cocktail bar playing cocktail music… [In] Muncie, Indiana. Like nowhere you can get. “
Luckily, Kevin Kline can sometimes use his musical abilities to work in his performances. Not only is this true when he performs in Broadway musicals like “On the Twentieth Century,” for which he won his first Tony Award in 1978, but he also sometimes finds explore those things on film as well as with films like “Adult Consenting” and “De-Lovely”, playing a composer in both.
It’s nice to know that he can be content with going completely unnoticed, performing music for a small town. Through his work, we can see him clearly enjoying the crowd’s reaction, and whether it’s a 1,000-seat Broadway theater or a piano bar in Indiana, that’s fine with him. .
