Cynthia Nixon will appear in a one-night only reading of Bill Corbett and Kira Obolensky's Hate Mail on December 6 at New World Stages. Michael Mastro will direct the performance, which will benefit Opening Act, a nonprofit that provides free after-school theater programs to New York City's most under-served public high schools.

The play is an epistolary romance that follows the comedic correspondence of spoiled rich kid Preston and angst-filled artist Dahlia as they sway from hate to love, and then back again.

Nixon won a Tony Award for her performance in Rabbit Hole. Among her other Broadway credits are The Women, Indiscretions, The Heidi Chronicles, Hurlyburly, The Real Thing and The Philadelphia Story. The actress is perhaps best known for her portrayal of Miranda in Sex and the City, both on television and in its film incarnations.
