Who's Afraid Of Kathleen Turner?

Kath Turner is on her way back to the West End for the first time since her 'impressive' performance in The Graduate five years ago (was that really five years ago?... wow, now we feel old!).

Turner is all set to come to London as Martha in Who's Afraid Of Virginia Woolf? in the new year. The show is currently playing on Broadway, and according to the Daily Mail (we know, we know, but it's the only report we could find) "Equity, the British actors' union, gave permission on Wednesday for all four members of the American cast - Ms Turner, Mr Irwin, Mireille Enos and David Harbour - to come to London under an exchange agreement."

Are you listening Patrick Stewart?

Apparently it has been a bit of fight to get the show over the Atlantic though, as this extract from the Mail's article more than demonstrates:

"It's been a long fight," sighed Nica Burns, a theatre owner who will co-produce with the main man Lee Dean.

"I've been on my knees for it for months," Ms Burns exclaimed, clearly still giddy from sealing the deal.

"When something's this good, it's worth pulling out all the stops to try to get it!"

On her knees? Is that how the theatre world operates theses days? We had no idea!
