Kim Cattrall, known for playing Samantha Jones in "Sex and the City," is starring on Broadway in Noel Coward's 1930 comedy Private Lives, which officially opened Nov. 17, following previews that began Nov. 6, at the Music Box Theatre.



Cattrall, who stars as Amanda, plays opposite Paul Gross in the revival that is directed by Richard Eyre. Here, the actress makes appearances on "LIVE! With Kelly" and "The Today Show" to talk about her return to Broadway.

Cattrall made her Broadway debut in Wild Honey with Sir Ian McKellen. She also starred in the U.K. stage production of Antony and Cleopatra. Her TV and film roles (in addition to "Sex and the City") include PBS'"Any Human Heart" based on the William Boyd novel; "Meet Monica Velour"; and Roman Polanski's "The Ghost Writer." She is a recipient of a Golden Globe Award; a Gemini Award (Canadian Emmy); two Screen Actors Guild Awards; five Emmy Award nominations; and three Screen Actors' Guild nominations.

Private Lives was last seen on Broadway in 2002, when it won the Tony Award for Best Revival of a Play.

Here's how producers bill the show: "Considered one of the greatest comedies ever written, Noël Coward's Private Lives premiered in London in 1930 and has been produced around the world ever since; it premiered on Broadway in 1931. Glamorous, rich and reckless, Amanda (Cattrall) and Elyot (Gross) have been divorced from each other for five years. Now both are honeymooning with their new spouses in the South of France. When, by chance, they meet again across adjoining hotel balconies, their insatiable feelings for each other are immediately rekindled. They hurl themselves headlong into love and lust without a care for scandal, new partners or memories of what drove them apart in the first place…for a little while, anyway."
