    Even though there is still quite a wait for the 23rd James Bond film, producer Barbara Broccoli is keeping herself busy with an array of other projects.

    In addition to producing the upcoming Broadway debut of Daniel Craig in A Steady Rain, WhatsOnStage reports that Broccoli is also acting as producer on Catwalk Confidential, Robyn Peterson’s one-woman show about her time as a supermodel.

    The production, which is currently playing in the UK at the Edinburgh Fringe, is set to transfer directly to the West End’s Arts Theatre for a limited four weeks from 9 September to 3 October 2009. Previews are set to commence from 4 September.

    Part fairy-tale, part memoir, part romance, this funny, cautionary and at times moving tale tells the story of 16-year-old Robyn fresh from Miami, who gets caught up in the world of high fashion amidst the boulevards of Paris in the early 1970s. In a whirlwind of glamour, sex and drugs, Robyn discovers there’s one thing to fear above all else: age. There is always a younger girl waiting to step into your shoes.

    Catwalk Confidential is brought to the stage by Broccoli’s Eon Productions and Michael Rose Ltd, the team who were also behind the stage production of Ian Fleming’s classic children’s tale Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.
