After a sold-out run in London's West End, David Hare's Skylight makes its Broadway debut with Bill Nighy and Carey Mulligan as Kyra and Tom, former lovers on the verge of re-awakening their long lost connection. But the years between them are not the only obstacles to a reunion, as preconceived notions and warring opinions ignite a dynamic debate in this comedic and Tony-winning show.
Oscar nominee Carey Mulligan is no stranger to the Great White Way, first appearing alongside her An Education co-star Peter Saarsgard in Ian Rickson's production of Chekhov's "The Seagull" in 2008. On film, she starred as Daisy Buchanan in The Great Gatsby and sung in the Coen's Inside Llewyn Davis. Bill Nighy is the suave, recognisable, swaggering Brit whose career has spanned film, theatre and movies, including Love Actually and The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel. This will be the third time he reprises the role of Tom.
Kyra is a harassed schoolteacher living in a freezing London apartment. One evening she gets a visit from Edward Sergeant (Matthew Beard), the son of her former lover. He wants to know where she went three years ago, when she was living with the family. After Edward, his father Tom turns up, a recently widowed charismatic restaurant owner. As Kyra and he sit down to a home-cooked meal, they revisit the past, and try to figure out what has changed between them, as hopes abound of their previous, passionate relationship.
If you're wondering what that lovely smell wafting through the auditorium during the performance is, it's Carey cooking a meal of spaghetti live on the stage in character as Kyra, right in front of you!
