Nicole Kidman to Return to the London Stage?
Nicole Kidman is eyeing a double-act in the West End. According to Daily Mail's Baz Bamigboye, she is in "complex negotiations" to see that she appears in two West End plays back to back.
She commented, "I don't know how it's going to work yet, but yes, that's the idea. Two in a row."

The first of these two, and the one that seems to be moving along the quickest, is Turgenev's A Month In The Country. Kidman would play Natalya, a bored housewife who falls in love with her son's tutor. The Royal Court's artistic chief Ian Rickson, who will also direct the production, hopes to have the show up and running by 2015.
It has been 16 years since Kidman last starred in a play- The Blue Room. She said, "I see so many plays in London, Sydney and New York, and I'm mindful that it's been a long time, but life and other work have conspired to keep me away. But I'm determined to make at least one of the proposals work. Who knows? Both of the proposals might come together."
If the both or even one of the proposals go through, Kidman said that her husband, Keith Urban, and their two youngest children will be moving to London.
