The Broadway revival of Thornton Wilder's Our Town - starring Paul Newman in a rare stage appearance - may be heading to London for a limited, and no doubt sell-out, West End season. Originally presented in Westport, Connecticut, the production opened at Broadway's Booth Theatre on 4 December 2002 with a box office advance of more than $2 million. Newman is internationally famous for his many films such as The Sting, Cool Hand Luke, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, The Hustler, The Prize and, last year, Sam Mendes' The Road to Perdition, but Our Town marks his first Broadway role in nearly 40 years. Set at the turn of the 20th-century, Our Town examines life in a small town in New Hampshire town, tracing the relationship of childhood sweethearts Emily Webb and George Gibbs. When it first opened on Broadway in 1938, it won the Pultizer Prize. The current revival continues in New York until 26 January 2003.
