A black-hearted leading lady, greedy, unscrupulous siblings, money, and Southern hospitality circa 1900 Alabama combine for a sparkling poisonous brew in the drama.
The Little Foxes opened at Fort Smith Little Theatre Feb. 15 and will continue with 7:30 performance Feb. 21-24 at the Fort Smith Little Theatre, located at 401 North Sixth Street in Fort Smith.
Director Jim Moody returns after a hiatus to helm this popular American drama by playwright Lillian Hellman. Hellman was an American dramatist famous for her mastery of the “well-made” play.
The Little Foxes premiered on Broadway in February 1939 starring Tallulah Bankhead and Patricia Collinge. The 1941 film, with a screenplay written by Hellman, was a famous vehicle for film actress Bette Davis. In 2016 actresses Laura Linney and Cynthia Nixon alternated in the roles of Regina Giddens and Birdie Hubbard on Broadway.
At FSLT, Cindy Clark leads the cast as Regina Hubbard Giddens, the discontented wife of the gentle, invalid Horace Giddens (Duff Taylor). Determined to go into business with her wealthy unscrupulous brothers, Ben (Bradley Kidder Jr.) and Oscar (Chris Cole), Regina sets out to enchant an affluent potential business partner, Mr. William Marshall (Mike Southern). When her efforts are thwarted, Regina turns her iron-will to manipulating the men in her life with dramatic results.
Artists, Audience & Community Live
Lauren Barth and guests will appear at Artists, Audience & Community Live, located at 801 Media Center at 801 North A Street in Fort Smit, on Thursday, Feb. 22. Doors open at 6:30 p.m., and the show starts at 7:30.
Growing up outside of LA, Barth eventually made her way to Tulsa, where she began forging her own musical path. Barth has a penchant for writing catchy songs that straddle the line between pop, Americana, and folk, bringing to mind artists like Sheryl Crow, Liz Phair, and Lucinda Williams.
Her latest album Forager pushes the boundaries, emulating her folk heroes with expansive, experimental songs and a psychedelic undercurrent. She captures the sparse landscape of Oklahoma with a laid back feel and the Tulsa Sound put on the map by the likes of Leon Russell, JJ Cale, John Fullbright, and others. This show will feature several very special guests including Tulsa stalwart Paul Benjamin and Fayetteville’s John Davies.
