Nicole Kidman to return to Broadway in 2011

NEW YORK (Reuters) - Oscar-winning actress Nicole Kidman is due to return to Broadway next year to star in a revival of the Tennessee Williams play “Sweet Bird of Youth,” a production spokesman said on Friday.

“It’s something that’s in the works (and) there’s an intent to move forward,” the spokesman said.

Kidman, 43, first appeared on Broadway -- with mixed reviews -- in 1998 in David Hare’s sexually explicit play “The Blue Room”, which included a brief nude scene.

The actress, who was raised in Australia, went on to win an Oscar for her role as writer Virginia Woolf in “The Hours” in 2002.

“Sweet Bird of Youth” was first staged on Broadway in 1959. This revival is due to be directed by David Cromer.
