Chris Noth returns to acting after scandal

Chris Noth made his way back to the stage on Saturday after facing sexual assault allegations earlier this year. But this time, it was way off- Broadway

Noth produced, directed and starred in a one-night reading of Eugene Ionesco’s “Rhinoceros” at Saint James Place in Great Barrington, Mass

“It was well-received. He received a standing ovation at the end,” a source told Page Six.

Noth cast local talent for the sold-out production and worked with producer Elizabeth Aspenlieder

The reading was the first time the former “Law & Order” star publicly performed since his character Mr. Big was killed off on HBO Max’s “Sex and the City” reboot

“I’ve been wanting to do this for years, and I was getting close to producing it at the Chichester Festival Theatre in England

Then COVID hit and people didn’t really want to see [avant-garde playwright] lonesco,” he said
