Broadway: Laura Linney, Cynthia Nixon to Co-star Next Winter in “The Little Foxes”


More big name actresses coming to Broadway next winter!

Cynthia Nixon and Laura Linney will co-star in Lillian Hellman’s “The Little Foxes” at Manhattan Theater Club. Daniel Sullivan will direct.

Linney and Nixon will trade off playing the parts of Regina and Birdie, which is pretty cool and means you have to see the show twice.

Lynne Meadow and Barry Grove are rocking over there at MTC. They also have Ruben Santiago-Hudson directing August Wilson’s “Jitney” in their January-February 2017 slot. Right now Frank Langella is an extended run of “The Father,” for which he’s Tony nominated this Sunday.

“Foxes” begins with previews in March and an opening night of April 19th.
