Cate Blanchett-Led UNCLE VANYA Plays Lincoln Center Festival, Now thru 7/28

Sydney Theatre Company’s (STC) acclaimed production of Uncle Vanya by Anton Chekhov, adapted by Andrew Upton and directed by Tamás Ascher (whose staging of Ivanov for Katona Jozsef Theatre was critically acclaimed at Lincoln Center Festival 2009), will be a highlight of the Lincoln Center Festival.

The production was named the best play of the year by Washington Post critic Peter Marks, who put the play in the number one spot on his annual list of theatre's top ten.

The entire original cast - John Bell, Cate Blanchett, Sandy Gore, Hayley McElhinney, Anthony Phelan, Richard Roxburgh, Andrew Tighe, Jacki Weaver and Hugo Weaving - will reprise their roles for the production which was a critical and box office triumph at Sydney Theatre Company in November and December 2010, before its Kennedy Center run in August of 2011.

This presentation is made possible in part by the members of the Producer’s Circle. Uncle Vanya is presented in association with New York City Center.

Ten performances at the New York City Center on 131 W. 55th Street will take place on July 19 and 20 at 7:30 PM (previews); July 21, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27 at 7:30 PM and July 28 at 1:30 and 7:30 PM.
