Get ready for some Checkhov. Initial casting for Heidi Schreck’s new translation of Uncle Vanya has been announced and it’s a doozy! The all-star company will include Steve Carell as Vanya, in his Broadway debut, William Jackson Harper as Astrov, Jayne Houdyshell as Mama Voinitski, Mia Katigbak as Marina, Alfred Molina as Alexander Serabryakov, Alison Pill as Sonya, and Anika Noni Rose as Yelena.
This production will mark Carell’s Broadway debut. Complete casting will be announced soon.
Directed by Lila Neugebauer, the Anton Checkhov classic will begin previews at the Vivian Beaumont Theater at Lincoln Center on Tuesday, April 2, 2024, with an official opening slated for Wednesday April 24, 2024.
Sonya (Pill) and her uncle Vanya (Carell) have devoted their lives to managing the family farm in isolation, but when her celebrated, ailing father (Molina) and his charismatic wife (Noni Rose) move in, their lives are upended. In the heat of the summer, the wrong people fall in love, desires and resentments erupt, and the family is forced to reckon with the ghosts of their unlived lives.
Uncle Vanya will feature sets by Mimi Lien, costumes by Kaye Voyce, lighting by Lap Chi Chu and Elizabeth Harper, and sound by Mikhail Fiksel and Beth Lake. Charles M. Turner III will be stage manager.
