Cattrall Cast in Cryptogram
Born 50 years ago next month in the United Kingdom, Kim Cattrall is perhaps best known for her sexed-up roles as Samantha Jones in television's "Sex And The City" and as Honeywell (aka "Lassie") in the silver screen's "Porky's." But these days, Cattrall clearly is set on demonstrating a more serious and mature acumen in her acting by tackling the West End stage.
She made her debut in London earlier this year in the revival of Brian Clark's Whose Life is it Anyway? and she's just been announced for the upcoming season at London's prestigious Donmar Warehouse. Cattrall will take the lead as Donny in a revival of David Mamet's The Cryptogram -- a story about the breakdown of a family. The dramatic play opens October 17 and runs through November 25.
Perhaps if she proves a solid dramatic stage success on the other side of the pond, she'll consider a return to Broadway -- her only sojourn to the Great White Way occurred nearly twenty years ago when she portrayed Sofya in the short-lived Wild Honey alongside Ian McKellen and Kate Burton.
This is Steve On Broadway (SOB).
