The Broadway revival of Lillian Hellman’s The Little Foxes officially opens April 19 at the Samuel J. Friedman Theatre. The Manhattan Theatre Club production stars three-time Tony nominee Laura Linney and Tony winner Cynthia Nixon, who alternate in the roles of Regina and Birdie. Tickets are available via Telecharge.com. Discount tickets are available for select performances here.
Linney will play the role of Regina on opening night alongside Nixon as Birdie.
Hellman’s play of greed and ambition began performances March 29 with direction by Tony winner Daniel Sullivan. Completing the cast are Darren Goldstein (The Madrid), Michael McKean (All The Way), Richard Thomas (An Enemy of the People), David Alford (Nashville), Michael Benz (The Importance of Being Earnest ), Francesca Carpanini (Dead Poets Society), Caroline Stefanie Clay (Doubt), and Charles Turner (The Trip to Bountiful).
Set in Alabama in 1900, The Little Foxes follows Southern belle Regina Giddens and her scheme to outwit her husband, the man standing in the way of her profit-making dreams. “Far from a sentimental look at a bygone era,” state MTC production notes, “the play has a surprisingly timely resonance with important issues facing our country today.”
