Hollywood superstar Cate Blanchett is set to make her Broadway debut. NY1 theater correspondent Frank DiLella filed the following preview.

Two-time Academy Award winner Cate Blanchett is finally making her Broadway bow. The actress is currently in previews in “The Present,” an adaptation of Anton Chekhov’s first play “Platonov.”

DiLella: What does Broadway mean to you?

“I think it’s got a very particular and eclectic audience,” Blanchett said. “I was really interested to see that Simon McBurney’s ‘Encounter’ is sitting alongside sort of ‘Hamilton’ and ‘Kinky Boots.’ I’m excited to be performing, all of us to be performing for that sort of eclectic mix of people.”

The play is set at a birthday party for Blanchett’s character of Anna.

“And so she brings everyone from her past together to see what’s worth salvaging,” the star said.

“The Present” has been adapted from the original Chekhov source material by Blanchett’s husband Andrew Upton.

“I got very attracted to, it’s really only one of the strands in the narrative, which is this beautiful dynamic between three men and a woman,” Upton said.

“The Present” comes to New York after a run at The Sydney Theatre Company back in 2015. The Broadway production features the entire Australian cast including Richard Roxburgh.

“It’s a play about a woman having a birthday and inviting all of her great friends around to share this experience, and of course it all goes terribly wrong. To do that with a company of players that you’ve worked with for so many years across so many permutations of experience is very special,” said Roxburgh.

When Cate Blanchett and Richard Roxburgh fall for each other, it rarely ends well. Dynasties crumple. Lives smash. Murder can follow. Or suicide. Sometimes both.

But these Australian actors, who have performed opposite each other for more than 20 years, seemed in rude health at a recent weekday brunch. On a break from rehearsals for “The Present,” an adaptation of an early Anton Chekhov play now in previews at the Barrymore Theater, they nestled in a corner booth at the Russian Samovar and listened to a waiter describe infused vodkas. “You cannot leave this place without trying many,” the waiter demanded.

“We have to do this,” Roxburgh said.

“We have to try this,” Blanchett concurred.

“Out of respect for Chekhov,” Roxburgh said.

Tipsy or sober, they do have a helpless reverence for Chekhov and a shared history with his plays. They played Nina and Trigorin in “The Seagull” in 1997 (dead child, wrecked life). They reunited as Yelena and Vanya for “Uncle Vanya” in 2010 (attempted murder, attempted suicide). Ben Brantley described this three-hour Sydney Theater Company production as “among the happiest of my theatergoing life.”

They’re reuniting for “The Present,” a hectic and sometimes wrenching comedy directed by John Crowley (“Brooklyn,” “The Pillowman”). When it had its première in Sydney, The Daily Telegraph called it “blisteringly brilliant.”

Adapted by Andrew Upton, Blanchett’s husband, it is a bold and boldly comic rendering of Chekhov’s first full-length play, never performed in his lifetime and discovered in a safe-deposit box in 1920, 16 years after his death. In its original form, the manuscript is an untitled, fragmented, 300-page muddle of a melodrama, most often called “Platonov.”

ABC has announced that on Thursday, December 29th, actors Cate Blanchett and Richard Roxburgh, both making their Broadway debuts in Anton Chekhov’s The Present, will appear on GOOD MORNING AMERICA.

Dr. Munjed Al Muderis is an orthopedic surgeon who has pioneered a new prosthetic limb allowing amputees to start walking sooner. It’s helped countless veterans. But in 1999, Munjed was ordered to cut off the ears of people fleeing the army in Baghdad when he was a junior doctor and Saddam Hussein was president.

So he fled Iraq, seeking asylum in Australia. Ten months were spent in detention but soon he was back in a hospital. This time, in Mildura. Today he’s in Sydney with his wife, his daughters and his dog. How far he has come.

Munjed is also one of the many refugees being celebrated by the UNHCR’s ‘Human Lives, Human Rights’ campaign as 2016 marks the 40th anniversary of the first major refugee arrival down under (five young men fled Vietnam and sailed into Darwin Harbour).

You can see their stories here and below, but Australian actress Cate Blanchett wants you to know something about them. They’ve never been more important.

“This campaign comes at an important moment, as more people are displaced globally than ever before,” Blanchett told The Huffington Post Australia.

Everyone celebrates Christmas a little differently. Some people like to throw ugly sweater parties; others like to blow past the season without giving it a second thought. A new campaign from retailer David Jones starring actress Cate Blanchett gives viewers a glimpse into what the holiday brings for people in Australia. You might find it’s not so different from your own celebrations.

The spot from TBWA in Sydney opens with Blanchett asking, “How do you Christmas?” As the spot unfolds, the viewer sees a whole host of ways people prepare for the holidays. It starts off pretty tame but quickly escalates to pretty out of control.

Nicky / December 18th, 2016   Manifesto

If the art world gave out Oscars, Cate Blanchett should win for her tour de force of starring roles in “Manifesto,” at the Park Avenue Armory. This toweringly ambitious, if occasionally pretentious film installation is the creation of Julian Rosefeldt, its writer, director and producer, a German artist drawn to complex narratives and fusions of real and cinematic space. His latest effort consists of 13 short films whose scripts are stitched together from nearly 50 manifestoes mostly by 20th-century artists, composers, architects and filmmakers. From Futurism to Pop Art and beyond, the writings layer knowledge, language and style into head-spinning densities. Some of these treatises were important turning points in art history; others are nearly forgotten.

The screens are the only light source, which guarantees a magical initial encounter. The first one focuses on a burning fuse. After all, manifestoes tend to be the inflammatory issue of angry, autocratic youth, usually male. They proliferated early in the last century (the first Futurist Manifesto dates from 1909), when artists increasingly saw themselves as rebels, out to transform their chosen media and society in the process. Logic fell out of favor, self-mythologizing did not. What better way to get attention than to gather together to announce the death of a previous art form and the birth of a new one.

Ms. Blanchett’s voice-over quotes the most famous sentence from Marx and Engels’s 1848 Communist Manifesto — “All that is solid melts into air” — then touches on the extremes of manifestoes from incendiary exhortation to laid-back parody. At one end is the manipulative Tristan Tzara, Dada’s founder, who begins adamantly, “To put out a manifesto you must want: ABC to fulminate against 1,2,3.” At the other, the gentle Philippe Soupault, a French Dadaist writer, is not looking for a fight: “I am writing a manifesto because I have nothing to say.”

The Match Factory has picked up international rights to Julian Rosefeldt’s “Manifesto,” which features Cate Blanchett, and screens in the Premieres section of the Sundance Film Festival.

“Manifesto” is the first feature-length film by the artist and filmmaker Rosefeldt, who is known for his elaborate film installations. He has adapted his multi-screen artwork of 13 films into one feature film.

The film combines artist manifestos from the early 20th to the start of the 21st century, including texts from Futurists and Dadaists to Pop Art and Fluxus, and from filmmakers like Lars von Trier and Jim Jarmusch. They are re-interpreted as “performative monologues” by Blanchett, who embodies 13 different roles, among them a choreographer, an elementary school teacher, a funeral speaker, a factory worker, a stockbroker, and a homeless person.

“The film reveals both the performative component and the political significance of these declarations, often written in youthful rage as a living call to action,” according to a statement. “[It asks whether] those passionate statements can actually be universally applicable in our contemporary society, and questions the role of the artist today.”

“I was blown away by the richness of images that Julian found for the different radical manifestos and the passionate performance of Cate Blanchett,” said Michael Weber, managing director of The Match Factory.

“Manifesto” is written, directed and produced by Rosefeldt, whose short films include “Lonely Planet” (2006) and “Asylum” (2001/2002).

As previously announced, The Match Factory has also acquired Tarik Saleh’s political thriller “The Nile Hilton Incident,” which will compete in the World Cinema Dramatic Section at Sundance. [Source]
