RIALTO CHATTER: A STEADY RAIN To 'Fall' In London With Jackman and Craig?


WhatsOnStage.com is reporting that early discussions are already under way for a West End transfer of the critically-acclaimed new American two-character play A STEADY RAIN by Keith Huff.

Hugh Jackman and Daniel Craig star in the production and are rumored to be in talks to take the leap to the UK stage after they complete their Broadway run

James Bond versus Wolverine ... Film fans will have a field day. Talks are already under way for a West End transfer of A Steady Rain, Keith Huff’s new play, which opens on Broadway this month starring Hugh Jackman and Daniel Craig.
The two-hander, first produced by Chicago Dramatists in 2007 and part of a trilogy about police officers, centres on two Chicago cops and lifelong friends who give different accounts of a harrowing incident. Inspired by a real-life incident involving Jeffrey Dahmer, the police unwittingly return a boy to a cannibalistic serial killer. When the boy’s murder comes to light, the men try to come to terms with their responsibility.
Now household names internationally for their screen credits, both Craig and Jackman are also accomplished stage actors, though neither have been seen on the London stage for quite some time: Craig since the premiere of Caryl Churchill’s A Number in 2002 and Jackman since Trevor Nunn’s 1998 National Theatre production of Oklahoma!.
A Steady Rain is co-produced by Broadway’s Barbara Broccoli, Michael G Wilson and Frederick Zollo with UK producer Michael Rose, who funded his share after his bank turned him down for a loan. The 12-week Broadway season, which started previewing at the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre on 10 September ahead of a 29 September, has already sold out, with crowds of over 500 congregating nightly outside the stage door and bringing traffic to a standstill.

A terrific play and phenomenal performances. BTW its not totally sold out there are still premium tix and some reg tixs available for latter in the run. Worth the trip across the Pond. - Michele 14 Sep 09

It was a great show and they are very gracious signing autographs afterwards! - Lisa
The top notch acting in the Weisz/Craig/Spall 'Betrayal' is emotionally true, often v funny and its beautifully staged with filmic qualities..

I'm not in London, but I would so want this to be true!! But ... we know Dan is beginning to pencil in film work for 2010 so we will just have to wait and see - patience is a virtue!!

Keeping my fingers crossed though ...

I would think that once its all set, they can take it quite easily to another stage - like Jude did with his Shakespeare. Matter of time, of course, but maybe a short run or later in the year a longer one.
