March 2, 1999

NEW YORK (AP) _ Bad news for Nicole Kidman fans.

The last week of the ``The Blue Room,″ the sex-themed drama that included a brief glimpse of the actress naked, has been canceled because of Ms. Kidman’s lingering bronchial infection.

``I am truly devastated not to complete the last week of the run and deeply apologize to the people who have planned to attend those performances,″ Ms. Kidman said in a statement Monday.

The buzz about the nude scene made the ``The Blue Room″ one of Broadway’s hottest tickets. The play was scheduled to end its sold-out run next Sunday.

Ms. Kidman missed four performances last week because of the infection. The David Hare drama opened Dec. 13 and played 82 performances, ending last Thursday.
