MADONNA TO MAKE WEST END DEBUT in MAY 02

Pop star Madonna will be making her West End stage debut in Up For Grabs , at the Wyndham's Theatre.

The play opens 23rd May 02, following previews from 9th May 02, and taking bookings to 13th July 02 (Tickets are now on sale!!).

A comedy by Australian playwright David Williamson, it explores the extent to which an art dealer will go to get a sale, and the moral hurdles which she must overcome along the way. Simone(played by Madonna) is an art dealer who is trying to crack into a new, wealthier market. She is given the opportunity to sell a Brett Whitely painting, and has guaranteed the artist a minimum of 2 million Dollars for the sale. It is not worth that much, and her relationship and apartment are under threat if she fails to find a buyer. Simone conducts a private auction between three interested buyers, and has to pull strings along the way to get the bids rolling.

The 41-year-old singer's last stage outing was on Broadway in David Mamet's "Speed-The-Plow" in 1988

Up For Grabs , which has a cast of seven, will be directed by Laurence Boswell.
