Cynthia Nixon - Cynthia Nixon To Star In Broadway Play Wit

Cynthia Nixon is to star in new Broadway production of 'Wit'.

The 'Sex and the City' star will portray Dr Vivian Bearing, a university professor of English who is dying from ovarian cancer and reflects on her life by referencing the metaphysical poetry of John Donne and the beautiful intricacies of language.

The play - which was written by Margaret Edson and won the Pulitzer Prize in 1999 - will be staged at the Manhattan Theater Club and is scheduled to officially open on January 26.

It will be the first time 'Wit' has enjoyed a Broadway run, although it was made into a 2001 HBO film starring Emma Thompson.

This won't be the first time Cynthia - who played lawyer Miranda Hobbes in the 'Sex and the City' TV series and the two films - has appeared on Broadway. She won a Tony Award in 2006 for her performance as a grieving mother in 'Rabbit Hole'.

The 45-year-old actress isn't the only 'Sex and the City' star to be heading to New York's world famous theatre district.

Her co-star Kim Cattrall is to star in a revival of Noel Coward's 'Private Lives' which opens in November.
