Sadly, Private Lives is to close on Broadway at the end of December. The following has appeared in The New York Times:

"The new Broadway revival of “Private Lives,” starring Kim Cattrall (“Sex and the City”) and Paul Gross, will close five weeks earlier than planned because of weak ticket sales, the producers announced on Tuesday night. The production of the classic Noel Coward play, which opened on Nov. 17 to generally good reviews, will now end on Dec. 31 instead of the original closing date of Feb. 5, 2012." Read more here.
