Lynne Meadow (Artistic Director) and Barry Grove (Executive Producer) are pleased to announce that Laura Linney and Cynthia Nixon will star in Manhattan Theatre Club’s new Broadway production of Lillian Hellman’s The Little Foxes, directed by Tony Award winner Daniel Sullivan.

In a first for Manhattan Theatre Club, Linney and Nixon will alternate in the roles of Regina Hubbard Giddens, and Birdie Hubbard, both members of a strong-willed aristocratic Southern family. The actresses will play the roles in repertory, appearing opposite each other at each performance. The schedule of which actress will play which role at each performance will be announced in Spring 2017.

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.

This limited engagement of 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 in Lillian Hellman’s legendary play about greed and ambition. 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. Tony winner Daniel Sullivan (Proof, Rabbit Hole) will direct.

Additional casting, creative team, additional listings information, and performance schedule for The Little Foxes will be announced at a later date. The schedule for Linney and Nixon alternating in the two roles will be announced in Spring 2017.
