Rita Wilson signs autographs for enthusiastic fans outside the Cort Theatre Tuesday, when she returned to the Larry David show “Fish in the Dark” after undergoing cancer surgery.

Actress Rita Wilson made her triumphant return to the Great White Way on Tuesday night, one month after announcing she had been diagnosed with breast cancer.

Wilson, 58, took a medical leave of absence from the Larry David-penned “Fish in the Dark” in March and disclosed her fight with cancer last month.

The actress underwent a double mastectomy and reconstructive surgery.
