Richard Nelson's Uncle Vanya, an adaptation of the Chekhov play translated and directed by playwright and director Nelson, officially opened at Hunter College beginning September 16.

The new translation, commissioned and first produced by San Diego's The Old Globe earlier this year, is the inaugural production of Hunter's Theater Project, a new initiative connecting professional shows with the college's students and faculty.

Uncle Vanya is translated by Nelson and Russian literature translators Richard Pevear and Larissa Volokhonsky. Performances are scheduled to run through October 14 in Hunter's 190-seat Frederick Loewe Theater.

Nelson directs a cast made up of Celeste Arias as Eléna, Jon DeVries as Alexánder, Kate Kearney- Patch as Marína, Jesse Pennington as Mikhaíl, Jay O. Sanders as Vanya, and Yvonne Woods as Sonya. All performers are reprising their roles from the world premiere on the West Coast. Alice Cannon, replacing Roberta Maxwell, joins the cast as Márya.

The creative team includes Jason Ardizzone-West (scenic design), Susan Hilferty and Mark Koss (costume design), Jennifer Tipton (lighting), and Will Pickens (sound design).
