Cate Blanchett-Led UNCLE VANYA to Play New York City Center, 7/19-28

Sydney Theatre Company's acclaimed production of Uncle Vanya by Anton Chekhov - adapted by Andrew Upton and directed by Tamás Ascher - will come to NY's City Center from July 19 through July 28, 2012, according to The New York Times.

The cast that played the Kennedy Center this August - John BellCate Blanchett, and Hugo Weaving included - are expected to reprise their roles for the production which was a critical and box office triumph at Sydney Theatre in November and December 2010.

More than 47,300 people saw the play during its Sydney run with every performance completely sold out. The production received exceptional reviews, described as "gloriously fresh, funny and poignant" (John McCallum, The Australian), "a magnificently mounted and playful production" (Elissa Blake, Sun Herald) and "a triumph" (Alex Lalak, Daily Telegraph). "This enthralling production surprises and delights, and leaves you feeling profoundly moved" said Jo Litson in the Sunday Telegraph and "across the board the performances are exceptional" wrote Jason Blake in the Sydney Morning Herald.
