Nicole Kidman Returns to Broadway after 14 Years!

While Nicole Kidman may have seemed more comfortable on the silver screen in the past decade than she has on the Great White Way, she’s about to prove once again why she was such a hit there in 1998. Back then she played five different roles in The Blue Room, written by David Hare and directed by Sam Mendes. This time, she’ll take on just one role, that of Joan Scott-Fowler in After the Dance.

The show first ran in 2010 in London’s National Theatre and had audiences continually coming back for more. The story is one about a desperate woman, Joan, who’s stuck in a marriage that began for all the wrong reasons; yet she struggles to hang onto it. Her fight comes to an end when her husband meets a much younger woman and ends the marriage; leaving Joan not only desperate, but alone too. And while ‘desperate’ is not a word that anyone would use to describe Nicole Kidman, with her past ups and downs in marriages, it’s definitely a role she can bring some real grit to.

Kidman was supposed to appear in Sweet Bird of Youth alongside James Franco, but that project has been postponed. It’s been said that Kidman was very eager to get into another theater project right away.

While there is no official word yet on when the show will begin its Broadway run, it’s thought that it will be in the lineup of spring or fall of next year.
