Tony Awards Close-Up: Daniel Sullivan Explains How He Brought THE LITTLE FOXES Back with Not One But Two Leading Ladies!

As the director of MTC's six-time Tony nominated revival of The Little Foxes, Daniel Sullivan has had the pleasure of bringing the classic to life twice over- with Laura Linney and Cynthia Nixon in rotating roles. What was their strategy in the rehearsal room? Figuring it out as they went!

Sullivan most recently Directed Sylvia on Broadway. His previous productions for Manhattan Theatre Club on Broadway include The Country House, The Snow Geese, The Columnist, Good People, Time Stands Still, Accent on Youth, Rabbit Hole, After the Night and the Music, Brooklyn Boy, Sight Unseen, and Proof. Sullivan's other Broadway credits include Glengarry Glen Ross, Orphans, The Merchant of Venice, The Homecoming, Prelude to a Kiss, Julius Caesar, I'm Not Rappaport, Morning's at Seven, the 2000 production of A Moon for the Misbegotten, Ah, Wilderness!, The Sisters Rosensweig, Conversations with my Father, and The Heidi Chronicles. Among his Off-Broadway credits are Lost Lake (MTC), In Real Life (MTC), Third, Ten Unknowns, The Night Watcher, Intimate Apparel, Far East, Spinning into Butter,Dinner with Friends, Stuff Happens, and The Substance of Fire.

Set in Alabama in 1900, The Little Foxes 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.

The American Theatre Wing's 71st Annual Tony Awards will air live from Radio City Music Hall on the CBS Television Network on Sunday, June 11, 2017 (8:00-11:00 PM, ET/delayed PT), hosted by Tony winner Kevin Spacey.
