Cynthia Nixon to star in “Wit” on Broadway
HollywoodNews.com: Cynthia Nixon may be best known for her role as Miranda Hobbs in the Sex and the City TV series and movies, but she also has a long Broadway career that will resume in January when she stars in the Pulitzer Prize-winning play Wit.
The play will begin previews on January 5 at Manhattan Theatre Club’s Samuel J. Friedman Theatre and which will officially open on January 26.
The play is about a brilliant and exacting poetry professor undergoing experimental treatment for cancer. A scholar who devoted her life to academia, she must now face the irony and injustice of becoming the subject of research.
Nixon has triumphed in Broadway before winning a Tony Award for her performance in Rabbit Hole. Her other Broadway credits are The Women, Indiscretions, The Heidi Chronicles, Hurlyburly, The Real Thing, and The Philadelphia Story.
An Emmy winner for Sex and the City and Law & Order: SVU, she currently appears on Showtime’s The Big C.
