Cynthia Nixon to Return to Broadway
Tony- and Emmy-Award winner Cynthia Nixon will be returning to Broadway this year, according to a press release on Broadway.com. Nixon is set to play Vivian Bearing, a professor of metaphysical poetry and a preeminant scholar on the John Donne, in Margaret Edson's play Wit in a production to be directed by Lynne Meadow. The actress, probably best known to American audiences for her Emmy-winning six year run on television's Sex and the City, won a 2006 Best Actress Tony for her star turn in another Manhattan Theatre Club production -- David Lindsay-Abaire's Rabbit Hole (a role which recently garnered an Oscar nomination for Nicole Kidman in that play's film adaptation).
