There’s more than one way to wear a bath towel. That’s the sum total of Kim Cattrall’s entrance costume in Richard Eyre’s larky revival of Noël Coward’s “Private Lives,” which opened on Thursday night at the Music Box Theater.

And because Ms. Cattrall is indivisible in the public imagination from Samantha Jones — the eternally randy character she played on “Sex and the City” — you may find yourself hoping for (or dreading) that moment when she opens her towel to display the goods to a hunky man onstage, or perhaps lets it fall to the floor with an arch “oops.”
