A washed-up superhero actor attempts to revive his fading career by writing, directing, and starring in a Broadway production.
In the original script, during their confrontation in The Rum House, Tabitha brings home her point, that Riggan is "a celebrity, not an actor", by casually requesting some William Shakespeare from a waiter named Eddie, who then performs a brilliant rendition of the monologue from act V of Macbeth on the spot. In the finished film, a madman in the street bellows out the monologue, then asks Riggan if it was over the top.
How did we end up here? This place is horrible. Smells like balls. We don't belong here.
Mike dares Sam to spit on a bald guy walking below them from the rooftop of the theater. However the sidewalk outside the St. James Theater is a covered sidewalk and neither of them would have been able to see the bald man from the roof, let alone spit on him.
