Actress and budding fashion designer Sienna Miller is set to make her Broadway debut this fall. Miller will star in After Miss Julie for the Rounadabout Theater Company. She will lead the play's three person cast as Miss Julie, a rich woman in her 20s. The other characters, who are Miss Julie's valet/chauffeur and her cook, have yet to be cast.
After Miss Julie is an updated version of the 1888 naturalistic play Miss Julie. It features three characters in the kitchen of a large country house outside of London after the British Labour Party has won the election in a landslide. A British telefilm and 2003 theater version of the story have already been produced. While this is Miller's first time on Broadway, it's not the actress' first stab at theater. She appeared in a 2005 production of Shakespeare's As You Like It in London's West End theater district.
In other Miller news, the actress has dropped out of Nottingham, the reimagining of the Robin Hood story, due to production delays. Miller was scheduled to portray Maid Marian in the film, also starring Russell Crowe. The role has yet to be recast.
