REVIEW: Cynthia Nixon reveals a chilly ‘Wit’

The scale of the Samuel J. Friedman Theater may be too large for the subtle, relatively intimate “Wit” to resonate completely and Santo Loquasto’s white-and-black sets look excessively severe, but director Lynne Meadow’s proficient staging gives the drama a nice fluency. “Wit” might actually function better at MTC’s off-Broadway space at New York City Center, but even so, it’s great to see this fine play once again.

“Wit” continues through March 11 at the Samuel J. Friedman Theater, 261 W. 47th St., New York. Call (212) 239-6200 or visit www.manhattantheatreclub.com.
