News   Sharon and Aimee Osbourne, Jenny Éclair and Naomie Harris Set for London Monologues
 
The Vagina Monologues will return to the West End in April when it opens at the Wyndhams Theatre. And, in keeping with this play’s tradition, a starry cast has been confirmed.

The show, scheduled to begin previews April 5 with an April 7 opening, will run for six weeks. The cast will include Sharon Osbourne and her daughter Aimee, Jenny Éclair and Naomie Harris.

Sharon Osbourne, husband of the rock star Ozzy and a record producer and artist manager in her own right, found wider fame through the reality TV series “The Osbournes.” Most recently, she further boosted her profile in the U.K. by appearing as a judge in another reality TV series, “The X-Factor.” Aimee, unlike Sharon and the rest of her immediate family, refused to appear in “The Osbournes.” She did go in front of the cameras, though, for an MTV production of “Wuthering Heights.” At the time, she reportedly told an interviewer, “I don’t have huge ambitions to be some big actress. I was casually asked. It was a great experience and I’m glad I did it.”

Comedienne Jenny Éclair is a past winner of the Edinburgh Festival’s ultra prestigious Perrier Award for comedy. Her stage appearances have included Steaming and The Andy Warhol Syndrome.

Naomie Harris is best known in Britain for her leading role in the TV drama “White Teeth.” Her profile is expected to be further boosted with the upcoming movies “Tristram Shandy” and the “Pirates of the Caribbean” sequel.

The Vagina Monologues will follow The Witches (starring Ruby Wax, herself a Vagina Monologues veteran) into the Wyndhams. For more information, call (0)870 060 6633.
