New in 2017Three-time Tony nominee Laura Linney and Tony winner Cynthia Nixon star in Lillian Hellman's classic play about greed and ambition.
Begins March 29th.
From the producers: 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. Far from a sentimental look at a bygone era, the play has a surprisingly timely resonance with important issues facing our country today.
Stars Laura Linney and Cynthia Nixon will alternate the roles of Regina Hubbard Giddens and Birdie Hubbard in repertory, appearing opposite each other at each performance.
