Maggie Gyllenhaal, Mamie Gummer, Peter Sarsgaard, et al. Set for CSC’s Three Sisters; 2010-2011 Season Announced
Maggie Gyllenhaal, Mamie Gummer, Josh Hamilton, Roberta Maxwell, George Morfogen, Ebon Moss-Bachrach, Peter Sarsgaard, and Louis Zorich will star in Classic Stage Company’s presentation of Anton Chekhov’s Three Sisters. Austin Pendleton will direct the production, which will begin performances in January.
CSC will begin its 2010-2011 season in September with the New York premiere of Sarah Ruhl’s Orlando, adapted from Virginia Woolf, and directed by Rebecca Taichman. Spanning three centuries, the play chronicles the boisterous adventures of Orlando, a young nobleman in Queen Elizabeth’s court who awakes in the middle of his life to discover that he is now a she, and immortal to boot.
The season will also include the lost Shakespeare play Double Falsehood, to be directed by Brian Kulick; David Ives’ School for Lies, a modern riff on Moliere’s The Misanthrope, directed by Walter Bobbie; and Unnatural Acts, conceived and directed by Tony Speciale.
The company’s popular First Look Festival will turn its gaze to Molière, with Tartuffe, School for Wives, and The Misanthrope, in April and May, 2011.
CSC will also reunite with the Graduate Acting Program of the Columbia University School of the Arts for the sixth year of The Young Company, which will present Shakespeare’s As You Like It in March, 2011.
