Lincoln Center Theater has announced initial casting for the upcoming production of Anton Chekhov’s classic play, UNCLE VANYA, featuring a new translation by Heidi Schreck.
Directed by Lila Neugebauer, the production will begin previews on Tuesday 2 April 2024 and open on Wednesday 24 April at the Vivian Beaumont Theater (150 West 65 Street).
UNCLE VANYA will star Steve Carell as Vanya, in his Broadway debut, William Jackson Harper as Astrov, Jayne Houdyshell as Mama Voinitski, Mia Katigbak as Marina, Alfred Molina as Alexander Serabryakov, Alison Pill as Sonya, and Anika Noni Rose as Yelena.
Complete casting will be announced soon.
Sonya (Pill) and her uncle Vanya (Carell) have devoted their lives to managing the family farm in isolation, but when her celebrated, ailing father (Molina) and his charismatic wife (Noni Rose) move in, their lives are upended. In the heat of the summer, the wrong people fall in love, desires and resentments erupt, and the family is forced to reckon with the ghosts of their unlived lives.
UNCLE VANYA will have sets by Mimi Lien, costumes by Kaye Voyce, lighting by Lap Chi Chu and Elizabeth Harper, and sound by Mikhail Fiksel and Beth Lake. Charles M. Turner III will be stage manager.
Tickets to UNCLE VANYA, priced from $39 to $179, will be available at the Lincoln Center Theater box office, at telecharge.com, or by visiting www.LCT.org beginning Friday, December 8 at 12pm Eastern. A limited number of tickets priced at $32 are available at every performance through LincTix, LCT’s program for 21 to 35-year-olds.
