Julia Roberts Wants to Return to Broadway

julia-roberts-mirror-mirrorJulia Roberts stars as the Evil Queen in Mirror, Mirror (set to open March 30), but the actress is thinking about returning to the world of theater.  She made her Broadway debut in 2006 with the play, Three Days of Rain.

In an interview with Sky News, Roberts said working onstage is “like childbirth, you don’t know until you’ve done it but you get a little bit away from it and you go, ‘Of course I want to do that again.’  You get sucked back into doing theatre because it’s really thrilling and does challenge you as an actor in really unique ways.  You know, I love the medium of film, I love that environment, but it’s just different.”

Now that her children are a little older (twins Hazel and Phinnaeus are seven and Henry is four), the Oscar-winner thinks she might be ready for another go on Broadway. 

She said, “I really enjoyed doing Three Days of Rain but I could definitely find ways to have more fun because now I have a much better sense of what I’m getting into.  I mean when we did Three Days of Rain, I had two little children and was doing eight shows a week.  There was a real relentlessness to it that you can’t understand if you haven’t been in that situation.”

Here’s hoping America’s Sweetheart will find another role that will allow her to shine onstage.
