Nicole Kidman Eyeing B’way Transfer for Photograph 51

first_img View Comments We told you that this had Broadway transfer written all over it! Nicole Kidman, who will begin previews in the West End in Photograph 51 on September 5, would like to perform Anna Ziegler’s new play on the Great White Way. She also admitted to the Daily Mail that she was “terrified” to return to the stage.Kidman was labeled theatrical Viagra for her last foray on the boards, The Blue Room. Her performance in the show at London’s Donmar Warehouse earned her an Olivier nod in 1999, and she went on to reprise the role on Broadway. Of her return to the theater she went on to say: “maybe I’m just shellshocked. But if I hadn’t done it now, I’d never have done it. I couldn’t wait another 17 years.”Photograph 51 follows Rosalind Franklin (Kidman). Does she know how precious her photograph is? In the race to unlock the secret of life it could be the one to hold the key. With rival scientists looking everywhere for the answer, who will be first to see it and more importantly, understand it? Ziegler’s play looks at the woman who cracked DNA and asks what is sacrificed in the pursuit of science, love and a place in history.Directed by Michael Grandage, Photograph 51 will play a limited engagement at the Noel Coward Theatre through November 21, with opening night set for September 14. The production co-stars Will Attenborough, Edward Bennett, Stephen Campbell Moore, Patrick Kennedy and Joshua Silver.last_img
