We all understand why we are compelled to do things that are morally unacceptable, but what happens when we actually do? Keira Knightley’s latest Broadway project, “Thérèse Raquin“, tells of a story about a woman who decides to go with her animalistic instincts, with total disregard for morality.

Keira graced the opening night of her Broadway play, in which she plays the title character.

The actress posed alongside co-star Matt Ryan before disappearing into Studio 54 for the showing. Keira’s husband and newly-minted-father was nowhere to be found. Perhaps they agreed not to have him watch it for its seemingly dark sexual content?

Keira wore a dress by Gucci, which didn’t quite look like Gucci’s trademark, polished ethereal design. The hemline on the actress is a bit long compared to the runway version. The purple satin pumps didn’t quite help her cause either.
