It’s Official! Out Gay Actress and two time Tony Winner, Cynthia Nixon has thrown her always -stylish hat into the political ring as is running for the Democratic Nomination for Governor of New York state! I’D VOTE FOR HER! Immediately!
I remember so clearly when she was accepting the Drama Desk Award, or was it the Tony just this past year for “Little Foxes” at the Manhattan Theater Club. She quoted Lillian Hellman’s rebel-rousing speech for “Little Foxes” about how there were two kinds of people. The Little Foxes who stole the grapes, and two, the people who just stood by and watched “and did nothing.”
And I thought that was a very brave statement to make at an Awards ceremony when she really didn’t have to go there, to that subject, I mean. and hmmm, “Is she making a step here?” Towards politics, I mean. And I was right! She was! Go Cynthia!
