Kidman Limits London Stage Commitments???
Date: 28 January 2002
According to newspaper reports at the weekend, Hollywood superstar Nicole Kidman is planning to spend more time in London - although, sadly, not with Sam Mendes in his final months as artistic director of the Donmar Warehouse. Kidman is apparently considering relocating with her children to our fair shores, having enjoyed living here while filming Stanley Kubrick's Eyes Wide Shut and appearing on the Donmar stage in Mendes' legendary 1998 production of David Hare's The Blue Room. Kidman was scheduled to return to the Donmar later this year - starring opposite Simon Russell Beale in a double bill of Twelfth Night and Uncle Vanya - but says is now unable to due to film commitments. An appearance in a Trevor Nunn-directed production of Ibsen's The Lady from the Sea is still a possibility though no longer a dead cert. Following her separation from husband Tom Cruise, Kidman has remained busy on the big screen, with acclaimed roles in The Others and Baz Luhrmann's Moulin Rouge (due to be adapted as a stage musical) as well as the upcoming The Birthday Girl, The Hours and Dogville.
