THE PRESENT

Broadway » THE PRESENT

Cate Blanchett and Richard Roxburgh succumb to the intoxicating power of lust and obsession in the Sydney Theatre Company’s production of The Present coming to Broadway for 13 weeks only. A new adaptation of Anton Chekhov’s first play, most commonly referred to as Patonov, The Present unfolds over the course of a raucous weekend birthday celebration in the Russian countryside. Old flames ignite in this passionate and bitingly comic play. Performed by thirteen of Australia’s finest actors, THE PRESENT is adapted by Andrew Upton, who – with Ms. Blanchett – led Sydney Theatre Company in an acclaimed five-year tenure responsible for such watershed productions as A Streetcar Named Desire (BAM, 2009) and Uncle Vanya (Lincoln Center Festival, 2012). John Crowley (Fox Searchlight’s Brooklyn) directs. This strictly limited engagement marks the Broadway debuts of both Ms. Blanchett and Mr. Roxburgh.
