pixeltracker

Private Lives began on Thursday night, November 17 at The Music Box Theatre. Broadway Beat was on hand to capture all the excitement and glamour of the opening night party and to talk to the show's cast!

Kim Cattrall stars alongside Paul Gross in Noël Coward's Private Lives, directed by Richard Eyre. The Broadway engagement follows sold-out runs in London and Toronto. The limited engagement runs through February 5, 2012.

Kim Cattrall, an international star of film, TV and stage, starred as Amanda in Sir Richard Eyre's production of Private Lives at London's Vaudeville Theatre in 2010 and Toronto's Royal Alexandra Theatre prior to Broadway. She made her Broadway debut in Wild Honey with Sir Ian McKellen. Cattrall is joined by Paul Gross in the role of Elyot. One of Canada's most acclaimed actors, Gross starred in such TV shows as Due South and Slings and Arrows. The cast is completed by Simon Paisley DayAnna Madeley and Caroline Lena Olsson.

Considered one of the greatest comedies ever written, Noël Coward's Private Lives premiered in London in 1930 and has been produced around the world ever since; it premiered on Broadway in 1931. Glamorous, rich and reckless, Amanda (Cattrall) and Elyot (Gross) have been divorced from each other for five years. Now both are honeymooning with their new spouses in the South of France. When, by chance, they meet again across adjoining hotel balconies, their insatiable feelings for each other are immediately rekindled. They hurl themselves headlong into love and lust without a care for scandal, new partners or memories of what drove them apart in the first place...for a little while, anyway.

The design team is Rob Howell (set and costumes) and David Howe (lighting). Private Lives is produced by Duncan C. WeldonPaul Elliott, Theatre Royal Bath, Terri and Timothy ChildsSonia Friedman Productions, Bill Ballard and David Mirvish.

The playing schedule is Tue. @ 7 PM, Wed.-Sat. @at 8 PM, Wed. & Sat. @ 2 PM, Sun. @ 3 PM.
