Blanchett and Weaving’s Uncle Vanya wows New York

After a successful run in Washington DC last year Andrew Upton, Cate Blanchett and Richard Roxburgh have brought the Sydney Theater Company’s production of the famous Chekhov play Uncle Vanya to New York City. And it’s wowing audiences in the Big Apple.

Opening as a part of the Lincoln Centre Festival at the weekend, critics have praised the “uniformly brilliant cast” that includes Cate Blanchett and Hugo Weaving.

Cate Blanchett and Richard Roxburgh are still slightly terrified by the play ‘It’s excruciating,’ says Blanchett. ‘What I find the most difficult thing to exist within is what Tamas [Ascher, the Hungarian director] describes in Chekhov as the “stupid silences” where everyone just falls into a silence that is utterly stupid, and their stupidity is revealed to them, and they are staring into a void.’ The production continues at the New York City Centre until Saturday.

Exclusive Discount for ‘One Man Lord of the Rings’ in NJ!

Don’t miss a chance to see Charlie Ross as he performs his ‘One Man Lord of the Rings’ at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center, June 2nd 2012 (3pm or 8pm). We are thrilled to exclusively offer you 20% OFF the price of tickets when you use the code ‘ONERING.’ Follow the link below and enter the code during checkout, or call 1-888-go-njpac and mention the code to the ticket agent. If you are not familiar with the show:

The big-screen Lord of the Rings may have had greater financial resources, but Charles Ross’ one-man version has just as much energy! This comedic send-up of Tolkien’s epic fantasy shoehorns 11 hours and 23 minutes of film into a mind-blowing, 65-minute performance in which Ross portrays 42 characters — as well as the theme music and sound effects. “Charles Ross is a winning entertainment machine,” says The Washington Post.

This show has been universally praised by Ringers internationally, so we highly recommend checking it out. If you do go, please send in a report of your experience to spymaster @ theonering.net. [Buy Tickets]
