The actress has kept a low profile after appearing in hit series Sex And The City and its spin-off movies, but she’s now stepping back into the spotlight in Gore Vidal’s play about politics.
She will replace Kerry Butler in the part of Mabel Cantwell, the wife of a presidential candidate. She is one of a number of high-profile stars to join the cast, including Cybill Shepherd, who replaces Candice Bergen, and John Stamos, who will take over Eric McCormack’s role.
Davis is the last of the Sex And The City leads to appear on the New York stage. Her stint kicks off on 10 July (12) until the show wraps in September (12).
