She must be in her 40s, and I’m in my 50s, so why is it too young?

And I am dealing with some of these issues.” She warmed further when a female director became involved — Marianne Elliott, a Tony Award winner for “War Horse.” But she still had reservations.

It seems at first that Chance is a callous gigolo taking the older woman for a ride.

But the relationship turns out to be much more complicated than it first appears, and the ravages of time are also of concern to the young man, who is 29 and fighting a growing sense of failure.

The steamy saga — first staged in 1959 and shaped for this production by playwright James Graham from Williams’ oft-reworked drafts — has hit home for Numrich as much as for Cattrall.

(AP) — “What a drag it is getting old,” a young Mick Jagger sang five decades ago — though he may have changed his mind since.

That’s also a theme of “Sweet Bird of Youth,” Tennessee Williams’ play about a faded movie star and a frazzled young hustler drifting toward disaster in a steamy Southern town.

So for Kim Cattrall and Seth Numrich, tackling these exposing roles on the London stage was a special kind of challenge. I think that’s also what makes it irresistible, because I don’t want to not go there.

“Doing theater is scary,” Cattrall said during an interview in an Old Vic rehearsal room, in a tone that suggests it’s a thrilling sort of fear. I think the other stuff is just too easy at this point.
