VIDEO: Diane Lane Talks Broadway's THE CHERRY ORCHARD on 'Late Show'

On Friday night's LATE SHOW on CBS, guest Diana Lane talks to Stephen Colbert about making her Broadway debut at age 12 and returning to the play in the lead role several decades later.

The Cherry Orchard began preview performances on September 15, 2016, and opens officially on Sunday, October 16, 2016. This is a limited engagement through December 4, 2016 on Broadway at the American Airlines Theatre (227 West 42nd Street).

The cast also includes Kyle Beltran, Tina Benko, Susannah Flood, Maurice Jones,Quinn Mattfeld, Peter Bradbury, Philip Kerr, Lise Bruneau, Jacqueline Jarrold, Ian Lassiter and Carl Hendrick Louis.

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.
