Films that are not for the dying so much

Nixon Returns To Broadway For Wit

20 July 2011 3:06 PM, PDT | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Sex & The City star Cynthia Nixon is returning to Broadway as the star of Margaret Edson's award-winning play Wit.

Ironically, the actress, who is a breast cancer survivor, will portray a professor who undergoes experimental treatment for the disease.

Nixon will be the second Sex & the City star to hit the stage in New York this winter - Kim Cattrall will lead the cast of a revival of Noel Coward's Private Lives in November.

Wit will begin previews in January at the Samuel J. Friedman Theatre.

Nixon won a Tony Award in 2006 for her role in David Lindsay-Abaire's Rabbit Hole.

She is also playing a cancer victim in TV series The Big C. »
