Photo Coverage: First Look at Kim Cattrall, Paul Gross in Toronto's PRIVATE LIVES!
Private Lives, the highly anticipated pre-Broadway production of Noel Coward's play, began previews on Friday and had its official opening in Toronto on September 25th. Starring Kim Cattrall as Amanda (fresh off her run in the same role on the West End) and Canadian favourite Paul Gross as Elyot, this new production will have a limited run in Toronto before opening on Broadway November 17th at the Music Box Theatre.
Private Lives is written by Noel Coward, and is considered to be one of the greatest comedies ever written. This new production is directed by Sir Richard Eyre, and produced by Paul Elliott and Duncan Weldon. It received rave reviews during its run in London's West End with the Daily Telegraph proclaiming "Richard Eyre's terrific new production of Noël Coward's remarkable comedy about love, lust and marriage: miraculously fresh and remarkably frank" and The Guardian complimenting Ms. Cattrall's performance as one that "exudes a shimmering allure with gleeful ecstasy." Toronto audiences have responded with equal enthuasism, including high praise for Broadway newcomer Paul Gross.
BWW is thrilled to be giving its readers a look at the production before it goes to the Great White Way, including interviews with the leads and lots of sneak peek photos.
