NEW YORK — Tony Award winner Cynthia Nixon is ready for another shot of "The Real Thing."

Roundabout Theatre Company said Thursday that Nixon, who starred in the Tom Stoppard play when it first came to Broadway in 1984, will come back this fall in a revival with Ewan McGregor and Maggie Gyllenhaal.

The play about relationships and fidelity centers on a married playwright who falls for an actress. In 1984, Nixon played the teenager Debbie. This time, 30 years later, the "Sex and the City" star will tackle Charlotte, her mother.

Previews begin Oct. 2 and it will open officially on Oct. 30 at the American Airlines Theatre under the direction of Sam Gold.

Nixon was in "Wit" on Broadway and won a Tony for "Rabbit Hole."
