Photo Coverage: On the Red Carpet for Opening Night of THE CHERRY ORCHARD

Roundabout Theatre Company's new production of The Cherry Orchard, starring Diane Lane, Chuck Cooper, Tavi Gevinson, John Glover, Celia Keenan-Bolger, Harold Perrineau and Joel Grey, officially opened just last night, October 16, 2016. This is a limited engagement through December 4, 2016 on Broadway at the American Airlines Theatre (227 West 42nd Street). BroadwayWorld was on hand for the special night and you can check out photos from the star-studded red carpet below!

This production of Anton Chekhov's classic play features a new version by Tony Award winner Stephen Karam (The Humans), directed by Simon Godwin (Associate Director, Royal National Theatre) making his Broadway debut.

The Cherry Orchard is Anton Chekhov's masterpiece about a family on The Edge of ruin-and a country on the brink of revolution. The story of Lyubov Ranevskaya(Lane) and her family's return to their fabled orchard to forestall its foreclosure, the play captures a people-and a world-in transition, and presents us with a picture of humanity in all its glorious folly. By turns tragic and funny, The Cherry Orchard still stands as one of the great plays of the modern era. First produced in Moscow in 1904, Roundabout's new adaptation promises to breathe fresh life into this towering tale.
