Sweet Bird of Youth'Sex And The City' star Kim Cattrall takes on the role of fading Hollywood legend Alexandra Del Lago in Tennessee Williams's Sweet Bird of Youth, directed by Marianne Elliott, co-director of War Horse and responsible for The Curious Incident of the Dog at Night-time at the National Theatre. Book tickets now to see Kim Cattrall star in Sweet Bird of Youth. Appearing at The Old Vic for the first time, in a production which forms part of Kevin Spacey's final season at the helm of the theatre, Cattrall has already proved her mettle on stage, last appearing in the West End in 2010 in Noel Coward's Private Lives, a production that subsequently transferred to Broadway. Charles Spencer, writing in The Telegraph, was reminded of, "the kind of woman Marilyn Monroe might have become had she lived a little longer...".

 

About Old Vic Theatre

With the exception of The Globe, the Old Vic has had a greater influence on the history of drama than any theatre standing today. From John Gielgud and Laurence Olivier, to Kevin Spacey and Judi Dench, the Vic has played host to generation after generation of stars since it opened its doors in 1818. More about Old Vic Theatre
