If you’ve survived the summer of countless Vanyas—and tired of sisters, seagulls, and cherry trees, too—Classic Stage has fresh Chekhovian fare for fall, the rarely performed Ivanov. Austin Pendleton directs Ethan Hawke as a melancholy landowner with Joely Richardson as his tubercular wife and Juliet Rylance as a lovesick neighbor.
Wednesdays-Saturdays, 8 p.m.; Saturdays, Sundays, 3 p.m.; Tuesdays, 7 p.m. Starts: Oct. 17. Continues through Dec. 9, 2012
