The Little Foxes
Manhattan Theatre Club presents three-time Tony Award nominee Laura Linney (Time Stands Still, Sight Unseen) and Tony winner Cynthia Nixon (Rabbit Hole, Wit), who will alternate playing the roles of Regina and Birdie in Lillian Hellman’s The Little Foxes, a legendary play about greed and ambition. Both actresses are scheduled to appear at every performance.
Set in Alabama in 1900, Lillian Hellman’s The Little Foxes follows a ruthless clan as they clash in often brutal ways. Far from a sentimental look at a bygone era, the play has a surprisingly timely resonance. Tony winner Daniel Sullivan (Proof, Rabbit Hole) directs.
