The whole Gotham – Summer 2012 interview has been published online and you can read it in our press archive. Its a good read!
I first met Andrew Upton and Cate Blanchett on the telephone two years ago. Wonderfully, they were eager to discuss ways in which productions from the Sydney Theatre Company might come to the Lincoln Center Festival. We talked about their staging of The War of the Roses, a compilation of Shakespeareâ€™s history plays; we talked about an adaptation for the stage of a sprawling novel about the early history of Australia. And then, after the tremendous success that the Sydney Theatre Company had with their production of A Streetcar Named Desire at the Brooklyn Academy of Music, I was afraid that we would not be able to lure the company to Lincoln Center. Undaunted, however, I met Cate and the Sydney Theatre Company executive producer, Jo Dyer, for coffee, having seen their company [in Washington, DC] in the best performance of Uncle Vanya of my theatergoing life.
