Oscar nominated actress Carey Mulligan (“The Great Gatsby”) will return to Broadway this spring, reprising her role in the transfer of the London production of David Hare’s “Skylight.”
Joining Mulligan will be Bill Nighy (“Love Actually”) and Matthew Beard (“An Education”), who also co-starred with her in the play’s critically acclaimed (and sold-out) London run.
Tony-winning director Stephen Daldry will also return to direct the revival, which tells the story of two former lovers (played by Mulligan and Nighy) trying to rekindle their romance despite their many differences. The play originally opened on Broadway in 1996, transferring then from the National Theatre in London.
“Skylight” will play a limited 13-week engagement beginning March 16 at the John Golden Theatre. Opening night will be April 2, with a closing set for June 14.
