With the filming circus in town for Can a Song Save Your Life, sightings of Keira Knightley are becoming somewhat commonplace. The 27-year-old English actress was spotted strolling SoHo on Sunday, arms locked with her fiancé James Righton. Theater-goers last week also caught a glimpse of the duo exiting a performance at Theatre 80 on St. Mark’s Place.

One Boogie reader sent the following dispatch to HQ:

Keira Knightly was spotted by staff at Theatre 80 last week leaving British comic Simon Amstell’s show, “Numb.” She watched the show with a male companion unbenownst to the production. It looks like the A list star BOUGHT a ticket under the radar and left without the customary backstage shenanigans. At first staff were like, nah It can’t be -The publicist would have told us, but the skinny Brit, sporting a tight red knee length skirt, black shirt and black horn rimmed glasses was identified by her distinctive voice when she thanked a fan for a compliment.

No photos of the encounter, which means she probably enjoyed her time paparazzi free.
