Nicole Kidman Coming to Broadway


Nicole Kidman, who just yesterday dove into the Oscar race, will be coming to Broadway in fall 2011. She’ll star as a drunk movie star in a staging of Tennessee Williams’s Sweet Bird of Youth. Coincidentally, Kidman’s fortunes this week have been the exact inverse of Robin Wright’s, who saw herself bounced from the Oscar race when The Conspirator's release got pushed to the spring and just bailed on her Broadway debut. On the bright side for Wright, this might indicate she has the most motile forehead in the world. [ArtsBeat/NYT]
