Paul Gross will help Kim Cattrall lend some Canadian star power to the Broadway-bound 'Private Lives' when it first hits Toronto this fall.
In front of a press-packed Royal Alexandra Theatre, the homegrown stars announced on Tuesday that they would be working together on Noël Coward's celebrated play.
"This is a very auspicious beginning and we're thrilled," Cattrall told reporters. "We hope everyone will support the production when we arrive here in September."
The 1920's era comedy of manners follows a divorced couple as they discover that they're honeymooning with their new spouses at the same hotel.
Private Lives will be performed at the Royal Alexandra Theatre from Sept. 17 to Oct. 30.
After that, the show is scheduled to hit Broadway.
