Kidman heads back to B’way in ‘Bird’

Actress expected to star in Tennessee Williams play

Nicole Kidman is lining up her next Broadway gig, with the actress expected to topline a fall 2011 staging of Tennessee Williams play “Sweet Bird of Youth.”

A rep for the show confirmed news of the brewing production, to be helmed by David Cromer (“Our Town,” “Brighton Beach Memoirs”). Scott Rudin, who also has “The Book of Mormon” on tap for the Main Stem this spring, produces.

Kidman will star as the past-her-prime actress who is the one of the leads of Williams’ 1959 play, which centers on the return of a young gigolo to his hometown in the company of the older woman.

Dates, theater and further casting have not yet been nailed down.
