"Mercurially brilliant import from Moscow's Vakhtangov theatre" - The Guardian (London)

"Dazzling production by Rimas Tuminas" - The Guardian (London)

After a sold-out run in London's West End, Russia’s legendary Vakhtangov State Academic Theater makes a triumphant return to New York City Center with its award-winning production of Anton Chekhov's UNCLE VANYA.

The production features a star-studded cast of Russia's most acclaimed actors:  Sergey Makovetskiy, Liudmila Maksakova and Vladimir Simonov. Director Rimas Tuminas injected his hallmark "tableaus of striking beauty and grace" (New York Times) into this fresh take on Chekhov's timeless classic, while remaining faithful to the long-standing Stanislavski theatrical tradition.

UNCLE VANYA is story of characters caught between tradition and transformation, personal isolation and communal action, the lure of love and the security of duty.  By turns hilarious and heartbreaking, Chekhov’s masterpiece lays bare the characters’ passions, hopes and desires with warmth and poignancy. Chekhov’s work is set in 19th-century Russia but remains relevant and modern today as a deeply human story of dashed dreams, thwarted love and eternal longing.

The production is the winner of the Golden Mask award (equivalent of the Tony Awards), Crystal Turandot and the International Stanislavsky Theatre.
