Cynthia Nixon, Laura Linney, Michael McKean of The Little Foxes Meet the Press
Lillian Hellman's play will be directed by Daniel Sullivan.
The stars of Manhattan Theatre Club's new Broadway production of Lillian Hellman's The Little Foxes met the press at their rehearsal studio on February 28. Directed by Tony Award winner Daniel Sullivan, the show stars previously announced three-time Tony nominee Laura Linney and Tony winner Cynthia Nixon. The limited engagement will begin March 29 in advance of an April 19 opening at the Samuel J. Friedman Theatre.
With Linney and Nixon alternating the roles of Regina and Birdie at every performance, the rest of the cast will include Darren Goldstein (The Madrid), Michael McKean (All the Way), Richard Thomas (An Enemy of the People), David Alford (Nashville), Michael Benz (West End's The Importance of Being Earnest), Caroline Stefanie Clay (Doubt), Lyla Porter-Follows (Frontier), and Charles Turner (The Trip to Bountiful).
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. The play was originally produced on Broadway in 1939, starring Tallulah Bankhead as Regina Giddens and Patricia Collinge as Birdie Hubbard.
The creative team for The Little Foxes includes Scott Pask (scenic design), Jane Greenwood (costume design), Justin Townsend (lighting design), and Fitz Patton (sound design).
