Meanwhile, another British stalwart Daniel Craig is also appearing on stage just a few blocks away.
So Sienna Miller had a lot riding on her Broadway debut when she began her run in After Miss Julie, taking the titular role this week.
Aware of the importance of the event, media-savvy Sienna, 27, went out of her way to ensure her night ended on a high, thanks to her fashion-forward choice of frock.
The starlet chose a real statement dress – a distressed Balmain number that was in itself enough to grab the headlines.
Of course, it wasn't just Sienna's fashion sense that was a talking point.
She received solid reviews for her turn alongside Jonny Lee Miller as the valet her character Julie seduces.
While a sprinkling of critics gave her a lukewarm reception, many spoke in praise of the actress, describing her performance as "compelling", gutsy" and "eminently watchable" .
Several other stars also joined the pundits watching the show.
Rachel McAdams made sure she had a seat at the production, as did newlyweds Claire Danes and fellow Brit Hugh Dancy, who both congratulated the leading lady in person afterwards.
