Carey Mulligan taking 'Skylight' to Broadway

By

NEW YORK (AP) — Carey Mulligan will reprise her role as an English school teacher when she brings a much-cheered revival of David Hare's "Skylight" to Broadway this spring.

Mulligan plays a woman who works at a troubled inner-city high school and receives an unexpected visit one night from her ex-lover, the recently widowed and wealthy restaurateur played by Bill Nighy.

Producers said Wednesday that performances will begin March 16 at the John Golden Theatre. It is staged by Academy Award-nominated director Stephen Daldry and was first seen in London this summer.
