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.

Changing Gears but Retaining Dramatic Effect
With her first and only play, Wit, in revival on Broadway, Margaret Edson makes it clear that she doesn’t feel any need to try playwriting again. She prefers the classroom stage.
