Complete casting has been announced for the Manhattan Theatre Club’s Broadway revival of Lillian Hellman’s The Little Foxes, which will feature three-time Tony nominee Laura Linney and Tony winner Cynthia Nixon alternating in the roles of Regina Hubbard Giddens and Birdie Hubbard.
Joining them will be Darren Goldstein (The Madrid, The Affair), Michael McKean (All The Way, Better Call Saul), Richard Thomas (An Enemy of the People, The Americans), David Alford (Nashville), Michael Benz (The Importance of Being Earnest, Downton Abbey), Caroline Stefanie Clay (Doubt, The Royal Family), Lyla Porter-Follows (Frontier), and Charles Turner (The Trip to Bountiful, Orphans Home Cycle).
Hellman’s lardmark drama about greed and ambition is set to begin March 29, prior to an April 19 opening at MTC’s Samuel J. Friedman Theatre.
The revival will be directed by Tony winner Daniel Sullivan. The schedule for Linney and Nixon alternating in the two starring roles will be announced shortly.
The creative team will be made up of Scott Pask (scenic design), Jane Greenwood (costume design), Justin Townsend (lighting design), Fitz Patton (sound design), Tom Watson (hair and wig design), Thomas Schall (fight director), Deborah Hecht (dialect coach), and Caparelliotis Casting (casting).
Set in Alabama in 1900, The Little Foxes follows Southern belle Regina Giddens and her scheme to outwit her husband, who stands in the way of her profit-making dreams. “Far from a sentimental look at a bygone era,” state production notes, “the play has a surprisingly timely resonance with important issues facing our country today.”
