Written by Jane Chambers, ‘Last Summer at Bluefish Cove’ centers on a woman who has just left her husband and meets a group of female friends who gather at a beach colony each summer.

AceShowbizCynthia Nixon is set to make her Broadway directing debut with the 40th anniversary revival of landmark lesbian production “Last Summer at Bluefish Cove”.

The former “Sex and the City” star will join forces with producers Harriet Newman Leve and power couples Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi, and Lily Tomlin and Jane Wagner.

The play centres on a woman who has just left her husband and meets a group of female friends who gather at a beach colony each summer. Written by Jane Chambers, the show broke new ground when it debuted in 1980 as one of the first to revolve around same sex characters.

While Nixon is no stranger to the Great White Way, the production will mark her first time in the director’s chair.
