Chancellor, Burke, Teale reunite for engagement
Alan Rickman’s Donmar Warehouse production of August Strindberg’s “Creditors” will see a New York run as part of the Brooklyn Academy of Music’s 2010 spring season.
First staged in London in October 2008, David Greig’s adaptation of the 1888 drama of marital bitterness and betrayal starred Anna Chancellor, Tom Burke and Owen Teale, all of whom will reunite for the Gotham engagement.
The play runs April 16-May 16 at BAM’s Harvey Theater. Director Rickman will give an Artist Talk on April 27.
Also on the BAM docket for spring is a return of the Maly Drama Theater of St. Petersburg with Lev Dodin’s production of Chekhov’s “Uncle Vanya,” running April 7-10.
In addition to the previously announced Shakespeare double of “As You Like It” and “The Tempest,” from the Bridge Project, BAM’s season also features dance engagements from the Mark Morris and Alvin Ailey companies. Conductor William Christie curates a 16-day Opera Festival that includes stagings of Purcell’s “Dido and Aeneas” and “The Fairy Queen.”
