Chris Noth returns to stage after sexual assault allegations

Chris Noth returned to the stage on Saturday after facing sexual assault allegations earlier this year. But this time it was far from Broadway.

Noth produced, directed, and starred in a one-day reading of Eugene Ionesco’s “Rhinoceros” at Saint James Place in Great Barrington, Massachusetts, and we’re told he was a “perfect stage actor.”

“It was well received. He got a standing ovation at the end,” a source told Vidak For Congress.

Noth cast local talent for the sold-out production and teamed up with producer Elizabeth Aspenlieder. He teased the modern classic on social media by posting an interview he did with The Rural We.

The reading marked the former “Law & Order” star’s first public appearance since his character Mr. Big was murdered on HBO Max’s “Sex and the City” reboot, “And Just Like That”, and his final appearance was cut from the show.

“I’ve wanted to do this for years, and I came close to producing it at the Chichester Festival Theater in England. Then COVID hit and people didn’t really want to see it [avant-garde playwright] lonely,” he said.

The public was ready to see it on Saturday and Noth, “was very happy with the show,” our insider said.

“Theatre is his greatest love. Everyone loved it. He plans to present future productions of this piece,” they shared.

Noth was also fired and his character was written off from his CBS series “The Equalizer” after two women accused him of past sexual abuse.

Noth has vehemently denied the allegations of sexual assault.
