Cynthia Nixon – A Sexy Broadway Start is Born!
Sex and the City Star Cynthia Nixon on Broadway
With the recent string of everyone’s favorite “New Yorkers” undergoing new career paths, it comes as no surprise that Sex and the City‘s very own Miranda, Cynthia Nixon, will be gracing us, real New Yorker, on the Broadway stage.
Nixon is no stranger to the Thespian world, she is a Tony-wielding mega-superforce to be reckoned with having won for her portrayal in David Lindsay-Abaire’s Rabbit Hole (that is, pre-Nicole Kidman film version, of course). Early next year, Cynthia Nixon will cake on her Ben Nye yet again to star in Margaret Edson’s W;t (or Wit) which garnered a Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 1999. Holler!
“W;t” draws inspiration from playwright, Margaret Edson, and her time working in a hospital. Edson spun her experience into an undoubtedly fine piece of heart wrenching theatre where our poetic protagonist is dying of ovarian cancer. The play recounts the tale of Dr. Vivian Bearing, an English professor, and her battle with her cancerous overtaking as she recalls the memoirs of her battle in the last hours of her life.
Now, let’s just say this play is not for the faint of heart. It will make you cry. It will make you sad. It will make you angry. Most importantly, W;t is a universal tale for anyone has battled cancer or for those of us who have lost someone to the battle. The melancholic state of mind that this play induces circumvents themes of life, death, poetry, pain, and the choices one must make in his or her life. I’m sure that Cynthia Nixon will portray this role with pure and raw emotional outpourings. W;t will be in previews starting January 5, 2012 at Manhattan Theater Club’s Samuel J. Friedman Theatre.
