Experience two Classics in one sitting!
“As I began preparing to present the two plays in rep, I saw an opportunity to display their strong thematic similarities in a new way. Both plays showcase characters experiencing longing for love at different times in their lives. In Uncle Vanya, they are looking back saying how did I get here? In Romeo & Juliet, they are looking forward saying how can I get there? By watching these epic classics side-by-side within the same sitting, the audience can follow the doubling actors on a journey through a landscape where both worlds intersect, revealing the characters’ varying experiences of love, loss and longing at various milestones in their lives.”
Eric Tucker, “America’s best classical stage director”
