Rose Byrne made her Broadway debut in theatrical production You Can't Take It With You on Sunday night.
The 35-year-old Australian actress dazzled on stage as well as at the after-party, where she turned heads in a stylish metallic bronze number.
With sleek golden brown shoulder-length locks and a pretty pinch of rouge to highlight her striking high cheekbones, Rose looked dressed to impress after an impressive performance at the Longacre Theatre.
Not long after the curtains closed, the NY Daily News published an article describing Byrne as 'smashing in her Broadway debut.'
Adding: 'She’s as sympathetic as she is amusing.'
The revival features Rose as Alice Sycamore and two-time Tony Award winner James Earl Jones, 83, as eccentric family patriarch Grandpa Vanderhof.
According to the New York Times, '[the production] translates familial dysfunction into platonic form.'

'It’s the way we all like to remember our own crazy families, when enough time has passed to turn what might have once been painful into funny, affectionate anecdotes.'
Follow your bliss is 'the philosophy pursued by three generations of the Sycamore family, who live under one roof on the Upper West Side of Manhattan, while ineptly pursuing passions that range from classical ballet to the manufacture of fireworks'.
Adding that the production 'makes [the viewer] beam from curtain to curtain'.
Opening night also drew Byrne's Damages co-star Glenn Close, 67, who was a Broadway star for years before finding Hollywood success and won the Tony Award for Best Actress in a Play for 1983's The Real Thing.
The play marked the Broadway debut for Rose who became widely known for her roles in 28 Weeks Later, Bridesmaids and more recently Neighbors.
You Can't Take It With You originally opened on Broadway in 1936 and a film version in 1938 by Frank Capra won the Academy Award for Best Picture and the Oscar for Best Director.
