While most other Off-Broadway theatres were up and running (along with nearly all of Broadway), the company announced via their twitter and website that all ticket holders would be contacted directly regarding the Jan. 27 cancellation.
CSC’s A Month in the Country, starring "Game of Thrones" actor Peter Dinklage and "Orange is the New Black" star Taylor Schilling, began performances Off-Broadway Jan. 9 with an official opening set for Jan. 29. Directed by Erica Schmidt, performances of the Ivan Turgenev classic will continue through Feb. 22.
Dinklage and Schilling co-star as Rakitin and Natalya, respectively, in a cast that also includes Anthony Edwards ("ER") as Arkady, Annabella Sciorra ("The Sopranos") as Lizaveta and Tony Award winner Elizabeth Franz (Death of A Salesman) as Anna.
"A Month in the Country chronicles the comic and erotic turmoil that befalls an otherwise quiet country estate when a handsome young tutor arrives to teach Natalya Petrovna's young son," press notes state. "But it is Natalya who soon becomes interested in a tutelage of another kind, much to the consternation of her husband and her long suffering friend, Rakitin, who is hopelessly and secretly smitten with her."
