Carey Mulligan, Bill Nighy to Open ‘Skylight’ on Broadway

London hit “Skylight” will get a Broadway transfer this spring, with stars Carey Mulligan and Bill Nighy reprising their roles in Stephen Daldry’s staging of the 1995 play by David Hare.

The production slips into the Golden Theater following the starry fall revival of “A Delicate Balance,” with a cast headlined by Glenn Close. Robert Fox and Scott Rudin, who both produced the show’s West End run in London, will bring the title to New York; Rudin also produces “Delicate Balance” this season, and will occupy Broadway’s Cort Theater with “This Is Our Youth” and the new play by Larry David, “Fish in the Dark.”

The limited London run of “Skylight” earned glowing reviews when it opened in June, helping to spur expectations of a Broadway run. Carey Mulligan was last on the Main Stem in the 2008 revival of “The Seagull” that starred Kristin Scott Thomas, while Nighy’s most recent stint on Broadway was in another Hare play, “The Vertical Hour,” in 2006.

The storyline follows two former lovers whose clashing beliefs emerge during an attempt to reignite their romance.

Matthew Beard, the third actor in the West End staging of the three-character play, also will make the move to the Broadway production, designed by Bob Crowley (sets and costumes), Natasha Katz (lights), Paul Arditti (sound) and Paul Englishby (original music).

“Skylight” begins previews March 16 for a 13-week run that opens April 2.
