Laura Linney, Cynthia Nixon, and More on a Timely Revival of The Little Foxes

Linney and Nixon will alternate the leading roles in a new Broadway production of Lillian Hellman's drama.

In a feat of heroism not seen on Broadway for many years, Laura Linney and Cynthia Nixon will share and alternate the two leading roles in Lillian Hellman's drama The Little Foxes. But this new production, directed by Daniel Sullivan for Manhattan Theatre Club, is more than just the opportunity to see a pair of New York's top actresses take on two great roles. It's the time to rediscover an old-fashioned masterpiece that has a decidedly modern feel. With a cast that also includes Michael McKean, Richard Thomas, and Darren Goldstein, sparks are sure to fly.
