About the show

Laura Linney and Cynthia Nixon switch roles as a pair of scheming Southern belles in The Little Foxes on Broadway. Following an ambitious family’s internal battle to win power, influence and money, this classic drama runs at the Samuel J. Friedman Theatre.

In Alabama at the turn of the 20th century, Regina Giddens, her brothers and her sister-in-law Birdie ruthlessly fight to outwit and outmanoeuvre each other’s business strategy. With shares of a lucrative cotton factory at stake, playwright Lillian Hellman’s sharply exposes the destructive allure of money and greed.

The Little Foxes premiered in 1939 and is considered an enduring example of 20th century American drama. It wasn’t a one-hit-wonder: Hellman’s other successes include The Children’s Hour and Watch on the Rhine.

Laura Linney and Cynthia Nixon co-star and alternate as Regina and Birdie. Emmy Award winner Linney is a Broadway veteran, having performed in critically acclaimed shows including The Crucible and Les Liaisons Dangereuses. Nixon is similarly prolific, with previous stage credits including Wit and a Tony Award winning turn in Rabbit Hole.

The cast also features Darren Goldstein (Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson), Michael McKean (The Homecoming) and Richard Thomas (An Enemy of the People).

Director Daniel Sullivan’s illustrious resume includes Conversations with My Father and Rabbit Hole. He is joined by set designer Scott Pask (Waitress), costume designer Jane Greenwood (Bright Star) and sound designer Fitz Patton (The Father).

Written 80 years ago but remarkably resonant to modern America, The Little Foxes at the Samuel J. Friedman Theatre is a smart, insightful classic with two of our best stage actresses heading up the cast. It begins previews on March 29 2017.
