Performances begin September 14 for Bedlam's Uncle Romeo Vanya Juliet, a mash-up of Shakespeare's Romeo & Juliet and Anton Chekhov's Uncle Vanya. The play, directed by Bedlam Artistic Director Eric Tucker, features a cast of five actors in numerous roles.
Uncle Romeo Vanya Juliet is playing a seven-week run in the Mezzanine Theatre at A.R.T./New York Theatres Off-Broadway, where it will officially open September 25. Tucker, who also performs, directs a cast completed by Edmund Lewis, Susannah Millonzi, Randolph Curtis Rand, and Zuzanna Szadkowski.
The play features an adaptation of Uncle Vanya by Kimberly Pau. The show pairs Shakespeare's well-known tragedy about two star-crossed lovers with Anton Chekhov's celebrated play about a retired professor's return to his estate with his new, young wife.
Bedlam's acclaimed adaptations include last season's Peter Pan, Sense and Sensibility, Saint Joan, and, most recently, Pygmalion. Visit Bedlam.org for more information.
