Pulitzer Prize Winning Drama Comes To Broadway!

Wit tickets are currently selling for the new Broadway premier. Previews had begun at the Samuel J. Friedman Theatre on January 5, 2012 with an official opening night scheduled for January 26. The new work is written by American playwright Margaret Edson. Edson draws on personal experience for her inspiration in writing the Pulitzer Prize-winning play. "Wit" (sometimes spelled "W;t") stars Cynthia Nixon under the direction of Lynne Meadow. The play is set for a three-month limited-engagement. Make sure at least to check out this new intriguing dramatic play.

Margaret Edson was born on July 4, 1961 in Washington D.C. As a child she spent her time studying theater and writing as well as English. She wrote and acted in many small and regional theater plays, eventually graduating from Georgetown University with a master's in English literature. "Wit" was Edson's first play which was produced in 1995 at South Coast Repertory in California. The play would be produced for its first New York run in 1998 and go on to win the 1999 Pulitzer Prize for Drama.

Wit tickets are an invitation into the last hours of Dr Vivian Bearing (Cynthia Nixon ) life. The play is one continuous act without intermission. The university professor of English is in her last hours as she is dying from severe ovarian cancer. Throughout the exquisite and often humorous writing, Vivian reflects on her life and her initial diagnosis of Stage IV metastatic ovarian cancer. She accepts the recommendation of her oncologist Dr Harvey Kelekian to try an experimental treatment. The literary scholar soon finds herself at the mercy of research, one filled with satire and injustice.

Margaret Edson's play is wonderfully written and full of meaning. She based her inspiration for the work on her brother Alan Palmer's battled with cancer. She spent much time in the hospital helping to fight her brother's illness which eventually too his life. It is perhaps this close connection, which brings forth such a wonderful truthfulness and elegance to her writing, which clearly comes through. Wit" is sure to gain an audience on Broadway and a great play to catch for those looking for a dramatic work filled with amazing writing and dialogue. The play won the 1999 "Best New Play" from the New York Drama Critics' Circle. This marks the first time the play will be staged for Broadway so it has never been eligible for a Tony Award. "Wit" was adapted into a made for television movie in 2001 in which it won an Emmy Award. Wit tickets are currently on sale now for all Broadway performances.
