Critics have yet to review The Misanthrope, which doesn’t officially open until next week, but members of the 800-strong audience at London’s Comedy Theatre told the Evening Standard that Knightley was “wonderful”.

“You never know what you are going to get when you go to a play starring a big movie star,” said Joan Jove, 30.

“Theatre is so different and sometimes they get it wrong, but Keira was expressive and I think she really worked in the role.”

“People have obviously said before the performance that she would not do very well but clearly she can handle all that pressure and did a really good job on the night.”

The actress plays an American socialite in an updated version of the Molière classic, which also stars Band of Brothers actor Damian Lewis.

The show took more than £1million in ticket sales in four days after news was announced that Knightley had been cast.

Dee Jeffery, 48, said: “Keira was extremely good. I thought she was even better than Damian Lewis, which was a real surprise to me. She did a wonderful job.”

Many critics have expected the theatre novice to struggle on stage but the actress managed to win over the crowd at last night’s preview.

Knightley is the latest in a long line of film stars including Cate Blanchett, Sienna Miller and Nicole Kidman who have made the leap from screen to stage.
