A “hyper-intimate” production of Anton Chekhov’s Uncle Vanyadirected by Jack Serio, will run for 16 performances only at a private loft in the Flatiron District June 28-July 16. The limited engagement, produced by OHenry Productions, will host just 40 audience members a night.

Uncle Vanya sees the lives of Sonya, her uncle, and a visiting doctor disrupted by the arrival of Sonya’s father, Professor Serebryakov, and his restless new wife, the beautiful Yelena. Serio’s production will use Paul Schmidt’s seminal translation of Chekhov’s play, which was first produced by the Moscow Art Theatre in 1899.

Tony winner David Cromer will lead the cast as Vanya, with Will Brill as Astrov, Julia Chan as Yelena, Will Dagger as Telegin, Tony nominee Marin Ireland as Sonya, two-time Tony winner Bill Irwin as Serebryakov, Nathan Malin as Yefim, Ann McDonough as Maria, and Virginia Wing as Marina.

The creative team includes Walt Spangler (scenic design), Ricky Reynoso (costume design), Stacey Derosier (lighting design), and Christopher Darbassie (sound design).
