Cate Blanchett on Broadway? Count me in. Oh and did I mention the show is a new adaptation of Anton Chekhov's first play? Well it is theatre fans. FYI, that makes the second Chekhov adaptation of the season, with The Cherry Orchard starring Diane Lane playing on Broadway at the American Airlines Theatre. The Present, which is being adapted by Andrew Upton is set to begin previews at the Ethel Barrymore Theatre on December 17, with opening night scheduled for January 8.
So what exactly is The Present all about? Well according to the show's official site, The Present takes place at an old country house in the mid 1990'as where a group of friends gather to celebrate the birthday of the very self-efficient but somewhat timid widow Anna Petrovna. As the celebration continues, tales of betrayal as well as unresolved feeling's are exposed, making the evening one that they will soon never forget.
Now that sounds like my kind of show. By the way for those of you who want tickets to see the show you are luck. We sell it. Plus from now you can get tickets to see the show at rates that can't be beat. Be advised that while this "Special Offer" is good thru from December 19 thru January 8, it is for select seats only, and as always subject to availability. Get your tickets to see The Present on Broadway at the Ethel Barrymore Theatre. Until next time theatre fans.
