Keira Knightley braces for bad reviews
Keira Knightley is set to make her professional stage debut with Moliere’s The Misanthrope on Thursday. She stated, “I’m not coming into it with any great expectations of coming away with great reviews.” Knightley co-stars with Damian Lewis and Tara Fitzgerald in a play that moves from 17th Century Paris to modern-day London.
On her recent decision to take the live stage a chance Thaindian reports that she said, “I thought if I don’t do theatre right now, I think I’m going to start being too terrified to do it. So I just thought, okay, dive in and give it a go.”
The play will run until March 13 at the Comedy Theater. Other recent stars who have made the switch to the stage are Nicole Kidman, Jude Law, Kevin Spacey, and Daniel Radcliffe.
