The show, written by David Hare and directed by two-time Tony winner Stephen Daldry, will begin previews at the John Golden Theatre on March 16, followed by an official opening on April 2. The limited engagement also features Matthew Beard and spans 13 weeks, through June 14.
The revival follows high-school teacher Kyra Hollis (Mulligan) as she receives an unexpected visit from her former lover, successful restaurateur and recent widower Tom Sergeant (Nighy), at her shabby apartment. Things were once very different. Raised in upper-middle-class luxury in leafy Surrey, Kyra was formerly the right-hand woman in Tom’s catering empire as well as sometime babysitter for Tom’s son Edward (Beard), but something happened to make her leave. As the night unfolds, all is revealed.
Skylight was first staged in 1995 at London’s National Theatre and then transferred to the West End and Broadway, with Michael Gambon and Lia Williams as the leads. Nighy took over the male lead in 1997, and will reprise the role opposite Mulligan when it jumps stateside, after a sold-out run on the West End. Tickets range from $60 to $149 and are now available.
Skylight is designed by Bob Crowley, with lighting design by Natasha Katz, sound design by Paul Arditti and original music by Paul Englishby. It will be produced on Broadway by Robert Fox and Scott Rudin.
