FATAL ATTRACTION's original screenwriter James Dearden also penned the stage version, which is set in the present and includes a few changes to the original plotline. As BWW previously reported, it is expected that the stage version may be all-around less violent. However, the infamous "rabbit scene" will remain.
The 1987 film famously starred Michael Douglas and Glenn Close. FATAL ATTRACTION is about a married man who has a weekend affair with a woman who refuses to allow it to end and who becomes obsessed with him.
The movie was a smash hit, becoming the second highest grossing film of 1987 in the United States and hugely popular internationally. Critics were enthusiastic about the film, and it received six Academy Award nominations, including that for Best Picture and Best Actress for Close.
