WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
The Vakhtangov State Academic Theatre of Russia returns this June 15 - 18 for four performances only of Uncle Vanya, Anton Chekhov's great tragicomedy of wasted potential and blighted dreams, at New York City Center as part of the V International Cherry Orchard Festival of the Arts. Director Rimas Tuminas' Expressionistic slapstick production was chosen by The Guardian in London as one of the Best Theater Events of 2012, and won Russia's Golden Mask Award. The cast features some of Russia's most acclaimed actors: Sergey Makovetskiy, Liudmila Maksakova and Vladimir Simonov.
