It has now come out that Dreyfuss has been failing to learn his lines properly, and is using the aid of an earpiece to perform on stage, the Daily Telegraph reported. Theatregoers, who were invited to preview performances of the show, ridiculed Dreyfuss' performance, and fans have commented online about his having to wear an earpiece.
"This is worse than awful and Dreyfuss is having his lines fed to him through an earpiece. You have been warned," the Daily Express quoted a fan as having written on theatre website Whatsonstage.com. Dreyfuss' representatives were unavailable for comment.
