Kim Cattrall To Star In West End Production Of Private Lives
Kim Cattrall is set to star in a new production of Noel Coward’s 1930 comedy Private lives. The show will begin performances London’s West End on February 24th 2010 and will run through until May 1st.
Cattrall last appeared in the West End for the comedy production of “Whose Life Is It Anyway” back in 2005. Matthew Macfadyen who'll be starring alongside Cattrall in Private lives is also no stranger to treading the boards. Macfadyen's last appearance on stage was in “The Pain And The Itch” at London’s Royal Court in 2007.
I’m assuming that Cattall and Macfadyen will take the leading roles meaning that Cattrall will be cast as Amanda and Mcfadyen as Elyot. The play follows Amanda and Elyot who is a divorced couple who meet and again while on their respective honeymoons to a new spouse. Realizing they are still in love and should never have divorced, they abandon their new partners and run off together. This fast paced comedy then has the couple back to their arguing ways and caught up in aggressive augments that had doomed their originally marriage.
Personally I love going to the theater and seeing a really good show. This production has all the hallmarks to be just that, a really good show. The play by Noel Coward is fantastic piece of work and the two lead roles will enjoy being back on stage having been away for a few years. If I happen to be in London during the run of Private lives and you want to know where to find me, you’ll find me at the Vaudeville Theatre watching this play.
