The Manhattan Theatre Club's Broadway revival of Lillian Hellman's "The Little Foxes" has got its complete casting coup. Three-time Tony nominee Laura Linney and Tony winner Cynthia Nixon will be reprising the roles of Regina Hubbard Giddens and Birdie Hubbard respectively. The future schedules for Laura and Cynthia will be announced soon.

The production will be staged on March 29 post which there will be an April 19 opening at MTC's Samuel J. Friedman Theatre. The revival is scheduled to run through June 18. According to PlayBill, Darren Goldstein (The Madrid, The Affair), Richard Thomas (An Enemy of the People, The Americans), Michael McKean (All The Way, Better Call Saul), David Alford (Nashville), Caroline Stefanie Clay (Doubt, The Royal Family), Michael Benz (The Importance of Being Earnest, Downton Abbey), Lyla Porter-Follows (Frontier), and Charles Turner (The Trip to Bountiful, Orphans Home Cycle) will form the supporting cast of "The Little Foxes."

The revival of "The Little Foxes" is helmed by Tony winner Daniel Sullivan. This Hellmark's landmark drama is an intense take on the materialistic and ambitious goals in human lives. The production is set in the 1900s with Alabama as the backdrop, where Southern belle Regina Giddens plots schemes to outwit her two brothers and husband who stands as the lone obstacle in achieving her dreams. What follows is a brutal clash between the members of a strong-willed aristocratic family, Broadway described. Though Regina is portrayed as a villainous character, "The Little Foxes" rightly shows the humiliation imposed on women.

The creative team comprises of Jane Greenwood (costume design), Scott Pask (scenic design), Justin Townsend (lighting design), Tom Watson (hair and wig design), Fitz Patton (sound design), Deborah Hecht (dialect coach), Thomas Schall (fight director), and Caparelliotis Casting (casting). The play was originally written by left-wing playwright Lillian Hellman in 1939. Some of Hellman's other renowned works are "Toys in the Attic," "The Children's Hour," and "Watch on the Rhine."
