We’ve long had Cynthia Nixon on our radar, whether as part of the Sex and the City crew or for her public revelation, in 2008, of her own recent breast cancer. The latter gives special gravitas, we think, to this particular member of WVFC’s series on Tony-Nominated Women with Honors. Nixon is being nominated for her performance, at Manhattan Theatre Club, in Margaret Edson’s Pulitzer-winning play Wit—an added reason why, perhaps, “Ms. Nixon seems to construct perfectly composed, illuminating and surprising thoughts with her sky-blue eyes—the kind of thoughts that if you saw them in print would make you stop and savor and reread,” as Ben Brantley described the performances in The New York Times. Whether Nixon ends up with a statuette or not, we suspect that the words “Best Actress” will remain hers forever.
