British Oscar-winning actress Catherine Zeta-Jones is set to star in the Broadway revival of Stephen Sondheim's 'A Little Night Music'.
Catherine Zeta-Jones is to star in the Broadway show 'A Little Night Music'.
The Hollywood beauty - who won an Oscar for her performance in 2002 movie 'Chicago' - is due to hit the stage for the revival of the Stephen Sondheim musical about the romantic lives of several couples alongside British-born actress Angela Lansbury.
The 83-year-old TV, film and theatre star only accepted the role on the premise she would be working with a highly-rated co-star in New York's celebrated theatre district.
The New York Post newspaper reported: "The great Angela Lansbury agreed to play Madame Armfeldt, provided the producers lined up another star to play her daughter, Desiree.
"Lansbury didn't want to shoulder a multi-million dollar Broadway revival by herself."
Catherine reportedly accepted the role after receiving a personal call from Sondheim.
The third London revival of the show ended in March following a four-month stint at the Menier Chocolate Factory theatre.
A month later, Natasha died tragically following a skiing accident aged 45.
