The Little Foxes Tony Winner Cynthia Nixon Discusses the Importance of Live Theatre on the Red Carpet
Watch the actor share her thoughts on the art form before winning her second Tony Award.
Prior to Cynthia Nixon’s big win at the Tony Awards June 11, the performer walked the red carpet, during which time she discussed what makes theatre special.
“There isn’t quite anything else like having a live audience and that interaction and having it be different every night,” Nixon said on the red carpet. “I feel like we’re much more sectionalized than we’ve ever been, all with our little screens, and to get 700 people into a theatre and put on a play for them; it’s an ancient form, and it’s one that we’re finding in rare supply these days."

In addition to her win, The Little Foxes took home one other trophy for Best Costume Design of a Play. Nixon shares the roles of both Birdie and Regina with her co-star Laura Linney.
Nixon also received a Drama Desk Award and an Outer Critics Circle Award for her work in the Manhattan Theatre Club revival, which will play through July 2 at the Samuel J. Friedman Theatre.
