‘Uncle Vanya’ Headed To Broadway With New Translation By Heidi Schreck

A Broadway revival of Anton Chekhov’s classic Uncle Vanya, with a new translation by playwright Heidi Schreck, will be staged this spring by Lincoln Center Theater. Lila Neugebauer (The Waverly Gallery) will direct.

Uncle Vanya will begin previews at LCT’s Vivian Beaumont Theater on Tuesday, April 2, 2024, ahead of an official opening night on Wednesday, April 24.

Schreck is best known for her critically acclaimed play What the Constitution Means to Me, which was nominated for two Tony Awards for its sold-out 2019 Broadway run. The play, which Shreck wrote and performed, was subsequently staged at the Kennedy Center in Washington D.C., the Mark Taper Forum, and other venues.

Casting for Uncle Vanya will be announced at a later date. The creative design team will include Mimi Lien (sets), Kaye Voyce (costumes), Lap Chi Chu (lights), and Mikhail Fiksel and Beth Lake (sound).

In its announcement today, LCT said the Neugebauer-Schreck collaboration will pair “Chekhov’s enduring masterpiece with one of America’s most celebrated contemporary playwrights in a strikingly immediate new translation.”

Here’s LCT’s snyopsis: “Sonya and her uncle Vanya have devoted their lives to managing the family farm in isolation, but when her celebrated, ailing father and his charismatic wife move in, their lives are upended. In the heat of the summer, the wrong people fall in love, desires and resentments erupt, and the family is forced to reckon with the ghosts of their unlived lives.”
