Wife Woodward Says Newman's No-Go???

By • West End
Well, maybe we were all getting a bit too excited. Following yesterday's gossip item about a potential transfer of the Broadway revival of Our Town starring Paul Newman in a rare stage appearance, comes another whisper on the matter. Apparently, Thornton Wilder's 1938 Pulitzer Prize-winning drama was nearly signed and sealed for the Savoy Theatre after its New York run ends later this month, but Newman's wife has vetoed the plan. While Newman was said to be keen to reprise his rare stage appearance in London, Joanne Woodward feared that her husband might be a high-profile terrorist target if he travelled abroad with the production.
