Last dazzling New York audiences with her portrayal of Blanche DuBois in A Streetcar Named Desire at BAM, Cate Blanchett returns with her Sydney Theatre Company to take on the role of Yelena in Chekhov’s Uncle Vanya as a part of the Lincoln Center Festival. The production received rave reviews when it came to D.C. last year, with The Washington Post calling it an “intoxicating, go-for-broke” performance. Director Tamás Ascher moves the action from late-1890s Russia to the 1950s Soviet era to tell the story of a professor and his trophy wife, who bewitches two men suffering from ennui on a rural estate.
Mondays-Sundays, 11 a.m. Starts: July 19. Continues through July 28, 2012
