Skylight Moves Up First Broadway Performance

Jan 15, 2015
John Golden Theatre

The upcoming Broadway production of the sold-out West End production of David Hare's Skylight, directed by Stephen Daldry, winner of the 2014 London Evening Standard Award for Revival of the Year, will now begin performances Friday, March 13 at the John Golden Theatre. The production, which will star Carey Mulligan and Bill Nighy, and feature Matthew Beard, all recreating their acclaimed London performances, opens Thursday, April 2 for a strictly limited 13-week engagement.

On a bitterly cold London evening, schoolteacher Kyra Hollis (Carey Mulligan) receives an unexpected visit from her former lover, Tom Sergeant (Bill Nighy), a successful and charismatic restaurateur whose wife has recently died. As the evening progresses, the two attempt to rekindle their once passionate relationship, only to find themselves locked in a dangerous battle of opposing ideologies and mutual desires.

David Hare's Skylight originally premiered at the National Theatre in London in 1995 before going on to play smash hit engagements in the West End and on Broadway the following year. When the 2014 production of Skylight opened in the West End in June it was praised by critics on both sides of the Atlantic.

SKYLIGHT is designed by Bob Crowley, with lighting design by Natasha Katz, sound design by Paul Arditti, and original music by Paul Englishby.

Tickets to Skylight, ranging from $60 to $149, are now available at For the performance schedule and additional information visit or call (212) 239-6200.
