Photo Flash: First Look at Carey Mulligan & Bill Nighy in SKYLIGHT on Broadway

Mulligan and Bill Night reprise their critically acclaimed West End performances in the hit London production of David Hare's Skylight at the John Golden Theatre (252 West 45th Street), directed by two-time Tony Award-winner Stephen Daldry. Skylight played to sold-out houses when it opened in the West End in June; it recently received the 2014 Evening Standard Award for Revival of the year. Check out a first look at the cast on stage below!

SKYLIGHT, which also features Matthew Beard, began performances on March 13, at the John Golden Theatre (252 West 45th Street). Opening night is Thursday, April 2. Skylight will play a 13-week limited engagement through Sunday, June, 21.

On a bitterly cold London evening, schoolteacher Kyra Hollis (Carey Mulligan) receives an unexpected visit from her former lover, Tom Sergeant (Bill Nighy), a successful and charismatic restaurateur whose wife has recently died. As the evening progresses, the two attempt to rekindle their once passionate relationship, only to find themselves locked in a dangerous battle of opposing ideologies and mutual desires.

SKYLIGHT is designed by Bob Crowley, with lighting design by Natasha Katz, sound design by Paul Arditti, and original music by Paul Englishby.

SKYLIGHT is produced on Broadway by Robert FOX and Scott Rudin.

David Hare's Skylight originally premiered at the National Theatre in London in 1995 before going on to play smash hit engagements in the West End and on Broadway the following year. When the 2014 production of Skylight opened in the West End in June it was praised by critics on both sides of the Atlantic.
