Classic Stage Company, under the leadership of Artistic Director Brian Kulick and Executive Director Greg Reiner, announced today that the official opening of Anton Chekhov's IVANOV has been postponed from this Sunday, November 4 to Thursday, November 15 due to the continuing power outage at the theater at 136 East 13th Street, which has forced the cancellation of five previews. Directed by Austin Pendleton, IVANOV stars Ethan Hawke, Joely Richardson and Juliet Rylance. The cast also features Glenn Fitzgerald, Annette Hunt, Stephanie Janssen, Roberta Maxwell, George Morfogen, James Patrick Nelson, Anthony Newfield, Austin Pendleton, Jonathan Marc Sherman, and Anne Troupe. IVANOV will play a limited engagement through Sunday, December 9.
Pending the projected restoration of power in the area today or tomorrow, CSC hopes to resume preview performances by Saturday evening, November 3, but ticket-holders should visit the company's website, www.classicstage.org, its Facebook page or Twitter feed (@classicstage) for updates.
Translated by Carol Rocamora, IVANOV features scenic design by Tony Award-winner Santo Loquasto (who also designed CSC's The Cherry Orchard, Uncle Vanya and The Seagull), costumes by Marco Piemontese (The Cherry Orchard, Three Sisters), lighting by Keith Parham (Three Sisters) and original music and sound by Ryan Rumery (The Cherry Orchard, Three Sisters).
