Amy Irving uses images from "Schindler's List," the film by her ex-husband Stephen Spielberg, as inspiration on Broadway.
She stars in the new Arthur Miller play "Broken Glass," the story of a Jewish woman in 1938 Brooklyn pushed into psychosomatic paralysis by a bad marriage and a terror of rising Nazism in Germany.
Spielberg's Oscar-winning movie "helped me a great deal on this," Irving told the Daily News in a story published Sunday.
To help her during a dream sequence, "the man pushing me down was Ralph Fienne's Nazi," she said. "Since then, I've used other images, but I still have images from 'Schindler's List' inside."
