Sienna Miller in "After Miss Julie" on Broadway

I went to see Sienna Miller in her Broadway debut in "After Miss Julie" play on Sept 19 that was presented by http://roundabouttheatre.org. It was show's "trial performance" in front of the sold out house before the official opening night on October 22nd. The play had a realistic subject matter of a love triangle: a woman (maid), her emotionally manipulative cheating fiancee (driver and butler) and Miss Julie who tries to break traditional class and sex roles. For about 1 hour and 30 minutes the three actors on stage gave it all: drama, comedy, a bird murder, cigarette smoking, sexual tension and the relationship issues. Sienna Miller gave a really good psychopath:) Overall, i liked the play. It had a nice chemistry between the actors, good dialogue and fast energy.
My closeness to the stage allowed me to admire 40's feminine dresses and pencil skirt suits, red lips and big curls. The only man in the show, Jonny Lee Miller, who's know for his main role in Eli Stone, managed to change on stage (yes, we got to see him in his undies:) in a couple of period man's suits.
After the show Sienna came out to sign some autographs wearing boyfriend jeans, plunging v-neck wrapped around light heather grey top, coral red necklace, few silver bangles, burgundy Prada bag. Her hair had an easy wave and natural lips, some black eyeliner, strong eyelash make up and deep red nails.
