Jessica Chastain - Jessica Chastain's Broadway Show To Close Early

Jessica Chastain's Broadway show will close a day early so the actress can attend the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (Bafta) Film Awards in London.

The Oscar-nominated star has been struggling to juggle her theatre stint in The Heiress with promotional commitments for her critically-acclaimed new movie Zero Dark Thirty during the Hollywood awards season.

She has pulled out of several performances so she could support the movie at various prizegivings, including the recent Golden Globe Awards where she landed a best actress trophy, and now she has confirmed her play will close early so she can fly to London to attend the Bafta awards.

The Heiress, which also stars former Downton Abbey actor Dan Stevens, was due to close on 10 February (13), the day of the U.K. movie event, but will now shut down a day early, according to Britain's Daily Mail newspaper.

Chastain tells the publication, "They've made special arrangements for people with tickets (to the cancelled show)."

The Help star is nominated for another best actress prize at the Baftas, which will take place at London's Royal Opera House on 10 February (13).
