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 )...

The BIG News!

He'd mentioned that this was in the works, but it was still hush-hush until the contracts were signed. Which I guess they have been.

That's our boy!

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.


Never having read or watched anything Twilight-related, I've no idea what any of that means, but it sounds really impressive!

Regarding the latest casting news...

I am just going to say: nobody ever can claim Christian Camargo doesn't have a sense of humor. I never thought I'd be looking forward to that movie (and apologies if it turns out to be a fluke, but I don't think it will).

Great show!

Had an amazing time at As You Like It yesterday. The production was beautifully done with a modern feel with a whimsical set design. The cast were brilliant - Ms R. is gorgeous and has a great sense of comedic timing. The whole thing was funny and well-staged.

Met up with CC for a beer and a chat afterwards and he said to pass on "hellos" and will keep us posted with upcoming events (we've been in touch on and off since Marlow).

The production is off to Spain in a week and then finally they'll get home for some well-earned rest.

He said that he hopes to spend summers in the UK, so we can probably expect him to pop back next year sometime.

I should have a bit more news in a few weeks - watch this space!
