Photo Flash: First Look at Cynthia Nixon in WIT

January 10
5:50 PM 2012

Manhattan Theatre Club presents Tony and Emmy Award winner Cynthia Nixon in the Broadway premiere of the Pulitzer Prize-winning play WIT by Margaret Edson, directed by MTC's award-winning Artistic Director Lynne Meadow. Check out production shots from the show below!

Joining Nixon as ‘Vivian Bearing' will be Pun Bandhu (Technician), Olivier Award winner Suzanne Bertish (E.M. Ashford), Michael Countryman (Harvey Kelekian/Mr. Bearing), Jessica Dickey (Technician), Chiké Johnson (Technician), Greg Keller (Jason Posner), Carra Patterson (Susie Monahan), and Zachary Spicer (Technician).

The limited engagement of WIT is now in previews and will open Thursday, January 26 at MTC's Samuel J. Friedman Theatre (261 West 47th Street). Tickets are currently on sale through Sunday, March 11.

Exquisitely written, affecting and often humorous, WIT follows a brilliant and exacting poetry professor (Nixon) as she undergoes experimental treatment for cancer. A scholar who devoted her life to academia, she must now face the irony and injustice of becoming the subject of research.
WIT had its New York premiere in 1998 receiving universal acclaim and ran Off-Broadway for over 500 performances. It was the most honored play of the season garnering the Pulitzer Prize for Drama and was named Best Play by the New York Drama Critic Circle, the Drama Desk Awards, the Outer Critics Circle Awards, the Drama League, and the Lucille Lortel Awards.
