Advance Tickets Now On Sale For Cate Blanchett In THE MAIDS
Hollywood superstar, current 2014 Academy Award Best Actress front-running nominee and respected stage stalwart Cate Blanchett brings her acclaimed performance in Jean Genet's THE MAIDS to Lincoln Center later this year for a special limited engagement and tickets are now on sale to Friends of Lincoln Center.
The official description of THE MAIDS is as follows: "Sydney Theatre Company returns to Lincoln Center Festival with Cate Blanchett, Isabelle Huppert, and Elizabeth Debicki in Jean Genet's The Maids. Inspired by the story of the infamous Papin sisters who brutally killed their employer and her daughter, Genet's play delves into the rituals of siblings Claire and Solange-played by Blanchett and Huppert-as they take turns playing both sides of the power divide and plot the demise of the domineering Mistress (Debicki). In 2012, Sydney Theatre Company's "glorious" (New York Times) production of Chekhov's Uncle Vanya was a break-out hit of Lincoln Center Festival, and with this North American premiere of The Maids, the company brings yet another acclaimed new staging to New York. Critics raved that the ravishing glass-box set is "the perfect high-octane setting for the sisters' fantasies of death and desire to unfold" (Time Out Sydney) and a "temple to narcissism, excess, and paranoia" (Huffington Post)."
THE MAIDS is set to run August 6 through 16 at Lincoln Center.
