|Seven Year Itch Seduces London Stage
- Another Hollywood star set to bare all in saucy stage adaptation
HOLLYWOOD STAR Daryl Hannah is to play the lead role in a West End adaptation of famous comedy The Seven Year Itch.
The actress, best remembered as a mermaid in the film Splash, will play the saucy temptress who seduces a married man in the role made famous by Marilyn Monroe in the 1955 film.
Those who expect to see Hannah bare all will not be disappointed. "I haven't brought her over here to be naked on stage," said producer Laurence Myers. "She's a wonderful comedy actress but if the play requires her to be naked, she won't have a problem with that."
However Hannah will not be performing the legendary billowing white dress scene. "Daryl is not a Monroe impersonator," Myers said.
Oscar-nominated Michael Radford will direct the play, which is due to open in October.
