Sienna Miller Makes Her Broadway Debut

Sienna Miller hits Broadway for the opening of After Miss Julie at the Roundabout Theater Company’s American Airlines Theater in New York City on Thursday (October 22).

The 27-year-old movie actress plays a rich young woman taking care of her father’s estate in the Patrich Marber‘s adaptation.

“This is what I have always wanted, to be on Broadway,” Sienna told NY Times. “I’m living my dream, and that’s all you can ask for. At a certain point, you have to ignore all the rest.”

FYI: Sienna is wearing a gold dress with sexy cut-outs from Balmain.

she’s a bad actress. Besides, being a homewrecker.

Her performance off-stage was flawless and saw her win over the crowd with her amazingly long legs.

But Sienna Miller failed to received the same reception from the tough Broadway critics following her turn in the opening night of her new stage show, After Miss Julie.

The 27-year-old actress stars as an aristocrat’s daughter in the play by Patrick Marber, a reworking of Strindberg’s 1888 classic Miss Julie.

Legging it: Sienna Miller leaving Manhattan’s American Airlines Theatre where she made her Broadway debut in After Miss Julie last night

The play centres on Miller’s sexual encounter with her father’s valet, played by Jonny Lee Miller, another English Broadway debutant better known to Americans as the first Mr Angelina Jolie.

But her performance was met with a creaking reaction by critics, with some of the most influential blasting her ‘second rate’ offering.

* Sienna Miller wins apology from New York paper which labelled her promiscuous

New York Times reviewer Ben Brantley, the most influential on Broadway, while confessing that he was initially ‘rooting’ for Ms Miller, wrote: ‘If Julie is written as clashing chords of conflicted impulses, Ms Miller plays them like a novice at a piano, plunking down each note loudly and individually.’

Only last weekend the New York Times apologised to the actress after it published an interview with her that began with a list of her former lovers which wrongly included the late Heath Ledger and Sean Combs.

The cast take a bow, but Sienna’s performance has divided critics

Terry Teachout, theatre critic for the Wall Street Journal also stuck the knife in.

He said: ‘A model turned second-tier movie star, all she does is stalk around the stage striking vampy poses… she has no more business playing a classic stage role than I have posing for the cover of Vogue.’

Sienna is treading the boards at Manhattan’s American Airlines Theatre, just a block away from where her ex-boyfriend Jude Law is starring in Hamlet.

American Vogue editor Anna Wintour and playwright Sir David Hare were among those in the audience to see the 27-year-old American-born but British-bred actress play the title role in Patrick Marber’s After Miss Julie.

Miller did receive support in some corners, however. The Associated Press described her theatrical offering as ‘compelling’ while the Chicago Tribune critic Chris Jones said she delivered a ‘gutsy’ performance that was ‘eminently watchable’.

It is Sienna Miller’s first theatre role since As You Like It in the West End in 2005. She is more widely known for her film parts in flicks including Layer Cake, Alfie and Factory Girl.

In an interview published prior to the play’s opening night, Miller said: ‘No matter what happens, I’m never going to regret making this decision. To be here is a complete honour and a privilege.’

After Miss Julie was first staged at the Donmar in 2003 to critical acclaim.

Miller and Law are part of a new wave of British actors treading the boards on Broadway.

Another of her exes – Daniel Craig – is performing alongside Hugh Jackman in A Steady Rain at the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre nearby.

*****, just like her idol, Kate Moss. Still, at least Kate still kicks a$$ has a model.

Another chick like Angelina famous for being famous. Another chick who banged her way to the top. Would we even know this b*Tch if she hadn’t banged Jude Law and got cheated on by him? Then here’s the kicker, she actually forgave him for awhile because she was afraid the media attention would go away which she loves. So she stayed with him then when she saw Jude was dropping out of the spotlight she dumped him and just decided to use her stupid fashion to get headlines. B*tch please you are not Kate Moss. You ripped her off! And she does that style better than you!

Why the hate?? women are JEALOUS of her.
Sienna is very pretty, sexy, attractive and very easy going person. She has that inner beauty.
God, I’d love to see her performance on Broadway. She’s great actress.

# 8

trash and no star.

# 9

trash.. real actresses younger than her are clever enough to make it in this business like scarlett, natalie, keira but sienna has nothing adorable on her-tramp!

She is good at acting. No doubts.

@10,
excuse me, “actress younger than her?? ”
Keira is pretty, Scarlett is hot but Sienna is more interesting.
Natalie Portman is few months oder than Sienna and She’s boring.

@tiffany: Lovely dress? Really? This dress looks more like trash to me. And, no, that’s not a compliment.

My gosh, why is she showing up at her premiere dressed like “Wilma Flintstone, the Sluttie Years”? Um, real classy. Fashion icon, someone said?

And no, purple poet, she didn’t dump him, he ultimately dumped her.

I seriously don’t find this girl attractive anymore at all. I used to some years ago, but I think she looks frumpy and she has a very short neck. not attractive.

the acting, well that is obviously not going so well for her in this play. And, everyone knows she is a famewhore and a homewrecker.

two tarts @ 10/23/2009 at 1:24 pm

Apparently she is a better seducer (tart) than actress by her track record.
Anyone who goes with a man (Daniel Craig) knowing full well he was seeing another woman in L.A is incomprehensible.
Of course, doesn’t say much about him either.

Sienna is wearing a gold dress with sexy cut-outs from Balmain.
LOL there isn’t no telling how much she paid for this dress….To me looks like a bunch of cat’s attack her dress!!!

SHE LOOKS LIKE TINKERBELL!! LOL

This website seems to love Sienna Miller. The amount of stories about her and her play are more than I’ve ever seen on any actress starring in a play.

Anyways, I heard Sienna’s acting got bad to mediocre reviews and I’ll definitely not be watching it.

Variety calls her depiction of Miss Julie as just a loony tart! LOL!

Better go back to modeliing Sienna.

zero class, no style, and lacking any real talent.

enough already. your rock is missing its reptile. just go away.

What's with that @ 10/24/2009 at 1:37 am

In what universe is she supposed to be 27 years old?
.
The same universe in which Charlize Theron is 34, Rachel Mcadams is 31, and Angelina is 34.
.
Anywhere between 3 (Rachel) to 6 years ago, but whatever.

Looks like she’s been in a catfight with someone’s wife.

I’m so glad that now all the “she’s such a wonderful actress” posters will have to shut up.

After all the wonderful reviews of After Miss Julie she can go backnow to filming the sequel to the cinematic wonder GI Joe.

there is something about her that is off lately
something about her face but i cant point it out
i heard from some reviews that she did a bad job, 2 bad sienna =[
i dont like her in that dress but her legs do look amazing
