Howard Davies' revival of Noel Coward's 1929 Private Lives, one of the few West End productions which seems to be unaffected by the post-terrorist tourist downturn, is hotly tipped for a Broadway transfer. Producer Duncan Weldon has confirmed that he hopes to make the transatlantic move in the first half of 2002. The classic comedy, which stars Alan Rickman and Lindsay Duncan along with Emma Fielding and Adam Godley, has won rave reviews at the West End's Albery Theatre, where queues are now regularly forming for returns. The limited London season is booking up to 8 January 2002.
