One Scene, Two Ways: Laura Linney and Cynthia Nixon Play Regina in The Little Foxes
The pair share roles in Daniel Sullivan's new Broadway revival.
Manhattan Theatre Club's revival of Lillian Hellman's The Little Foxes, starring three-time Tony nominee Laura Linney and Tony winner Cynthia Nixon, opens tonight at the Samuel J. Friedman Theatre. In the production, Linney and Nixon alternate the roles of Regina Giddens and her sister-in-law, Birdie Hubbard. With that in mind, the production has released two different versions of a particular scene, with Linney and Nixon as Regina.
