Cynthia Nixon and Laura Linney Take On a Supreme Act of Sharing in The Little Foxes

The pair celebrate opening night with their cast mates, including Michael McKean and Richard Thomas.

Lillian Hellman's The Little Foxes follows Regina Giddens and her ruthless clan, including her sister-in-law Birdie, as they attempt to strike the deal of their lives. In Manhattan Theater Club's new Broadway revival of the play, directed by Daniel Sullivan, stage and screen stars Cynthia Nixon and Laura Linney alternate those two roles. "The fact that Laura and I are doing this supreme act of sharing feels very right in some ways," Nixon told TheaterMania on opening night. "It's a play about people who don't know how to share."
