Complete casting has been announced for Classic Stage Company's new production of Anton Chekhov's The Cherry Orchard,
the tale of rich but shortsighted Russians — chief among them, Madame
Ranevskaya, played by Dianne Wiest — in a time of great change.
Oscar winner Wiest and John Turturro as former serf Lopakhin were
previously announced for the Off-Broadway staging, to be directed by
Andrei Belgrader. The translation by John Christopher Jones comes to
life starting Nov. 16 for a run to Dec. 23 at CSC's East Village home on
13th Street. Opening night is Dec. 4.
The tragicomic classic will also feature Christian Camargo (Trofimov )...
Christian Camargo, who is best known for playing the ice truck killer in TV drama ‘Dexter’ will play Eleazar, who is a Spanish vampire in the new “Twilight” movie.
