London stage calling for ‘Home’ boy Culkin

Thesp expected to ink 'Madame' role on U.K. stage

NEW YORK — Macaulay Culkin is in negotiations to make his London stage debut opposite Irene Jacob in Richard Nelson’s new play “Madame Melville,” about a 15-year-old American living in Paris who has an affair with his French instructor.

A spokesperson at praisery Rogers & Cowan said the 19-year-old actor was “seriously considering the project but has made no decision.” Culkin, expected to ink the deal shortly, is managed by Emily Gerson-Saines in New York City.

Culkin’s 1990 turn in “Home Alone” made him the most sought-after child star of the early ’90s. He last appeared on screen four years ago opposite Ted Danson in “Getting Even With Dad.”

“Madame Melville” is expected to open in October at the Vaudeville Theater in London, marking a rare commercial debut for playwright Nelson, who won a Tony Award in June for his book to “James Joyce’s The Dead.” Gregory Mosher, who produced “The Dead” on Broadway with Arielle Tepper, will be joined by a British team of producers to bring “Madame Melville” to the London stage. Nelson is set to direct.
