After a long while away, Hollywood starlet Nicole Kidman is returning to the West End to star in a the UK premiere of ‘Photograph 51’ by Anna Ziegler, directed by the very excellent Michael Grandage. Kidman last graced London’s theatreland 17 years ago in 1998 in when she got briefly starkers in the play ‘The Blue Room’ at the Donmar Warehouse. One reviewer at the time called her performance ‘pure theatrical Viagra’. We’re thinking that taking on the role of Rosalind Franklin – one of the scientists whose work in the ‘40s and ‘50s lead to the discovery of DNA – may not be quite as racy. But we’re still excited nonetheless.

‘Photograph 51’ starts Sept 5 and runs until Nov 21 at the Noel Coward Theatre. Tickets go on sale today at 9am, so get clicking at michaelgrandagecompany.com or ring 0844 482 5141
