Brodie starring Tony award-winner Cynthia
Nixon has been extended until December 9, reports

for her performance in the Broadway run of David
Lindsay-Abaire's Rabbit Hole last season. The
Prime of Miss Jean Brodie is based on the 1961
Muriel Spark novel of the same name, which follows a
colorful teacher who arrives at a Scottish girls'
school in the 1930s.
