Manhattan Theatre Club's production of Margaret Edson's Wit will begin Broadway previews Jan. 5, 2012. Here, Tony winner Cynthia Nixon and the MTC creative team discuss the upcoming production.

Directed by Lynne Meadow, the Pulitzer Prize-winning play will officially open Jan. 26, 2012, at the Samuel J. Friedman Theatre.

Joining Nixon as Vivian Bearing will be Pun Bandhu (Technician), Olivier Award winner Suzanne Bertish (E.M. Ashford), Michael Countryman (Harvey Kelekian/Mr. Bearing), Jessica Dickey (Technician), Chiké Johnson (Technician), Greg Keller (Jason Posner), Carra Patterson (Susie Monahan) and Zachary Spicer (Technician).

Wit, according to MTC, "follows a brilliant and exacting poetry professor (Tony and Emmy Award winner Cynthia Nixon) as she undergoes 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."
