MTC gets in ‘Rabbit’ habit

B'way offering pulls new trick

The subject matter of “Rabbit Hole,” David Lindsay-Abaire‘s quiet tearjerker about a family coping with the death of a 4-year-old, may not go hand-in-hand with partying hearty. But that didn’t stop Manhattan Theater Club from celebrating its latest Broadway offering on Thursday.

Star Cynthia Nixon was enticed back to the stage by the melodrama-free script. “When subjects like this come up, plays are usually a little more Greek in their grieving,” she said.

She and co-star John Slattery are parents of young children. “Doing this play is like a three-month therapy session,” Slattery said.
