BWW TV: Cynthia Nixon and Laura Linney Celebrate the Drama of Dual Roles in THE LITTLE FOXES on Opening Night
After the curtain closed Manhattan Theatre Club's Samuel J. Friedman Theatre last night, Laura Linney (Time Stands Still, Sight Unseen) and Cynthia Nixon (Rabbit Hole, Wit), who are alternating the roles of Regina and Birdie, appearing opposite each other at every performance, celebrated bringing modern audiences to the new Broadway production of Lillian Hellman's The Little Foxes, directed by Tony Award winner Daniel Sullivan. We're taking you to the opening night after party below!
Linney and Nixon are joined by Darren Goldstein (The Madrid at MTC, "The Affair"), Michael McKean (All The Way, "Better Call Saul"), Richard Thomas (An Enemy of the People at MTC, "The Americans"), David Alford (Broadway debut, "Nashville"), Michael Benz (The Importance of Being Earnest in the West End, "Downton Abbey"), Francesca Carpanini (Dead Poets Society at CSC, The Tempest), Caroline Stefanie Clay (Doubt, The Royal Family at MTC), and Charles Turner (The Trip to Bountiful, Orphans Home Cycle).
Two extraordinary actresses return to Manhattan Theatre Club in a vibrant new production of Lillian Hellman's The Little Foxes. In a thrilling coup, MTC presents Golden Globe and Emmy Award winner Laura Linney (Time Stands Still, Sight Unseen) and Emmy and Tony Award winner Cynthia Nixon (Rabbit Hole, Wit), who alternate playing the roles of Regina and Birdie, appearing opposite each other at each performance. Lillian Hellman's legendary play about greed and ambition is set in Alabama in 1900, and follows Regina Giddens and her ruthless clan, including her sister-in-law Birdie, as they clash in often brutal ways in an effort to strike the deal of their lives. Far from a sentimental look at a bygone era, the play has a surprisingly timely resonance with important issues facing our country today.
