On today’s episode, Matt Tamanini spoke with two of the stars of one of the buzziest shows in New York theatre right now, the star-studded, Uber-intimate production of Uncle Vanya that is playing in a loft down near Union Square.
Matt is joined by Tony Award winner David Cromer and star of stage and screen Julia Chan. In the production, they play Vanya and Yelena respectively in a cast that also features brilliant productions from Will Brill, Marin Ireland, Thomas Jay Ryan, and a host of other incredibly talented actors.
In the conversation, they discuss why so many red-letter names wanted to take on the task of performing Chekhov in front of 40 people, why they all were clamoring for a 90-seat return engagement, how the audience impacts their performances in such a small space, and much more.
