Nicole Kidman Joins Broadway's Sweet Bird of Youth!

Nicole Kidman will return to Broadway in a revival of the Tennessee Williams play Sweet Bird of Youth next Fall!

The 43-year-old actress, who appeared on the Great White Way in 1998 in the controversial play The Blue Room, will play Alexandra Del Lago, an aging, drunken and sexually voracious movie star, according to the NY Post. The character is considered to be one of Williams’ greatest stage monsters.

Nicole recently premiered her upcoming drama flick Rabbit Hole at the Toronto International Film Festival to rave reviews!

  • boston61

    She looks like a waxy dead fish. She is aging about a s good as Madonna.

  • NoH8

    I don’t know why all the botox comments. She has lines on her face. Sounds like envy to me. Nicole seems to take good care of herself and it’s known she doesn’t go in the sun. We should all look so good at 43. Great news about one of my favorite actresses.

  • pippy

    I love her too and think she is one of the better actresses out there.

    Nicole’s career has been driven by her talent, not her looks. She’s a gifted actress, and this is a very demanding role. You have to admire her for taking risks like this. Fabulous news.

  • rainy

    I saw her The Blue Room and she was fantastic. Had real stage presence. I think she will be absolutely wonderful in this role. It will stretch her skills as and actress and I bet her performance will WOW everyone.

  • Jules

    Everyone is entitled to their opinion..if your hate her (even if your don’t know her) is your choice… and good for you.
    But for me Nicole is one of the best actress of this generation..who take risk in the majority of her work..I admire for that..and enjoy all her work….

  • ALWAYS beautiful

    Love Nicole and so happy for her. She deserves all the happiness she can get, she is a sweet loving person and such a great actress!

  • jo

    Wonder what changed for Nicole. She distinctly told Oprah recently that she no longer “had a burning desire to (act/make movies) anymore” and didn’t care if she “never made another” … that she wanted to spend the time with her family, loving life in Nashville, adding that if Keith tours she “won’t take on a role” … well, Keith has announced that he is doing a “huge” long tour next year – and we know NK is doing the Hemingway movie, possibly Danish Girl, PR for Go With It and probably premiers for Rabbit Hole, and now the play too (let alone the commercials stuff). ??? Is she just fickle, or what? Also, can’t be trying for a baby like she has said they are … must be in the contracts she has signed for next year to NOT get pregnant. Stick to the truth Nicole; it’s easier! No problem carrying on acting; just be honest to the public about it. And probably your family too!! (It’s a fallacy that one can have it ALL).

  • N+P

    She always great in every role.I Love you Nicole.

  • little my

    Rabbit Hole has opned to Raves and Now she’s coming to Broadway playing a Tennessee Williams monster.Not to mentioned a slew of project inbetween. Nicole is back with a Vengence!

  • Mandy

    Nicole is a rare combination of a great actress, a beauty, and a star. She is extraordinary.

  • stephen

    Nicole Kidman in Sweet Bird of Youth is among the most depressing news items to emerge lately. Williams’ great monster, Alexandra del Lago, is decidedly beyond the reach of this Hollywodite. Thinking of the great Geraldine Page brooks a poor comparison indeed. But NY theatre has degenerated into revivals featuring names who adopt ‘noses’ and she’ll undoubtedly garner a Tony nomination. Cromer is a magician, but this desultory news is stretching even his considerable talents. What possessed him?
