Nicole Kidman's Play Canceled
Mar. 02, 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.
