After a 20 years absence, Meryl Streep returned to the theatre, joining Mike Nichols’ powerhouse cast, including Kevin Kline, Christopher Walken, Philip Seymour Hoffman, John Goodman, Marcia Gay Harden and Natalie Portman, for a Shakespeare in the Park revival of “The Seagull” at Delacorte Theatre. Streep received glowing reviews for playing Arkadina, and received a Drama Desk Award nomination. She narrated a slew of television programmes, including the miniseries “School: The Story of American Public Education” and the Blue Fairy in Steven Spielberg’s “A.I.
