Lynne Meadow (Artistic Director) and Barry Grove (Executive Producer) have announced full casting for Manhattan Theatre Club’s new Broadway production of Lillian Hellman’s THE LITTLE FOXES, which begins rehearsals today under the direction of Tony Award winner Daniel Sullivan.
As previously announced, Laura Linney (Time Stands Still, Sight Unseen) and Cynthia Nixon (Rabbit Hole, Wit), will alternate playing the roles of Regina and Birdie, appearing opposite each other at every performance.
Linney and Nixon are joined by Darren Goldstein (The Madrid at MTC, “The Affair”), Michael McKean (All The Way, “Better Call Saul”), Richard Thomas (An Enemy of the People at MTC, “The Americans”), David Alford (Broadway debut, “Nashville”), Michael Benz (The Importance of Being Earnest in the West End, “Downton Abbey”), Caroline Stefanie Clay (Doubt, The Royal Family at MTC), Lyla Porter-Follows (Broadway debut, Netflix’s “Frontier”), and Charles Turner (The Trip to Bountiful, Orphans Home Cycle).
The limited engagement of Lillian Hellman’s THE LITTLE FOXES will begin previews on Wednesday, March 29 and open Wednesday, April 19 at MTC’s Samuel J. Friedman Theatre (261 West 47th Street).
Two extraordinary actresses return to Manhattan Theatre Club in a vibrant new production of Lillian Hellman’s The Little Foxes.
In a thrilling coup, MTC will present 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, appearing opposite each other at each performance.
Lillian Hellman’s legendary play about greed and ambition is set in Alabama in 1900, and 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.
Tony winner Daniel Sullivan (Proof, Rabbit Hole) will direct. Sullivan, a frequent MTC collaborator, has directed Linney to Tony nominations in both MTC’s Broadway premiere of Sight Unseen and MTC’s New York premiere of Time Stands Still. Sullivan directed Nixon to a Tony Award in MTC’s Pulitzer Prize-winning Rabbit Hole.
The creative team for Lillian Hellman’s The Little Foxes includes: Scott Pask (scenic design), Jane Greenwood (costume design), Justin Townsend (lighting design), Fitz Patton (sound design), Tom Watson (hair and wig design), Tommy Kurzman (make-up design), Thomas Schall (fight director), Deborah Hecht (dialect coach).
The schedule for Linney and Nixon alternating in the two roles will be announced shortly.
