Tony Award® and two-time Emmy® Award winner Cynthia Nixon returns to MTC’s Friedman Theatre in Margaret Edson’s modern masterpiece Wit, helmed by MTC’s award-winning Artistic Director Lynne Meadow. This Pulitzer Prize-winning drama makes its Broadway premiere at MTC and marks Nixon’s return to Broadway following her Tony-winning turn in MTC’s Rabbit Hole.
Exquisitely written, affecting and often humorous, Wit follows a brilliant and exacting poetry professor 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.
