Forget Oscars, Saoirse is RULING Broadway with her brand new play


Following her marathon press junket for Brooklyn and after slaying the red carpet at every turn this awards season, you would think Saoirse Ronan would be looking to take a little break. 

But you would be totally wrong because Saoirse is all set to begin a 20-week run on Broadway proving that she is actually superhuman. 

Saoirse is starring in an adaptation of classic play the Crucible and it seems that the show has been deemed a roaring success weeks before its official opening on 31 March. 

According to the Irish Independent, the play raked up an impressive €500,000 for it's six preview shows in the last week. 

The Crucible is a famous American play about the infamous Salem witch trials of 1692. Saoirse is slated to play Abigail Williams in the adaptaion, a teen who decides to use the town's drama to her own advantage. 

Her co-stars include British actor Ben Whishaw and Irish actor Ciaran Hinds. 

The play was due to begin on February 21 but the producers pushed back the date so the talented Carlow native could attend the Oscars at which she was up for a gong for her impressive turn in Brooklyn.

So does everything Saorise Ronan touch turn to gold?
