VIDEO: Mark Rylance's Academy Award Takes A Surprise Bow At NICE FISH

Film legend Steven Spielberg and wife Kate Capshaw ventured out to St. Ann's Warehouse in DUMBO on Sunday, reports Page Six, to catch the director's Oscar-winning BRIDGE OF SPIES star Mark Rylance in Nice Fish

As seen in the video below, Rylance and the audience got a surprise during the curtain call. From the trap door in the stage where, typically, one of the play's puppets pops out to take a bow, a hand emerged holding the Best Supporting Actor Academy Award that Rylance won on February 28th.

The delighted audience extended their standing ovation for the company.

A three-time Tony Award winner for his performances in BOEING-BOEING, JERUSALEM and TWELFTH NIGHT, Rylance co-authored Nice Fish with poet Louis Jenkins. Set on a frozen Minnesota lake, where the ice is beginning to creak and groan, the play involves two men who are out on the ice angling for answers to life's larger questions. Rylance is joined in the cast by Jim Lichtscheidl, Raye Birk, Bob Davis and Kayli Carter.

Directed by Claire van Kampen Nice Fish features scenic design by Todd Rosenthal, costume design by Ilona Somogyi, lighting design by Japhy Weideman and sound design by Scott Edwards.
