BWW TV: Double Trouble- Watch Cynthia Nixon and Laura Linney Perform the Same Scene from THE LITTLE FOXES


What happens when two icons of the stage and screen swap roles? Two completely different instances of Broadway magic

Manhattan Theatre Club's new Broadway production of Lillian Hellman's The Little Foxes, directed by Tony Award winner Daniel Sullivan, opened earlier this week at MTC's Samuel J. Friedman Theatre (261 West 47th Street). The limited engagement began performances on Wednesday, March 29. Laura Linney (Time Stands Still, Sight Unseen) and Cynthia Nixon (Rabbit Hole, Wit), alternate playing the roles of Regina and Birdie, appearing opposite each other at every performance.

Below, watch as the leading ladies perform a scene from Act 1. In the first clip, Nixon takes on Regina and Linney plays Birdie. In the second, Linney takes the reigns as Regina and Nixon transforms into Birdie.
