Cate Blanchett revealed to the Daily Mail that after starring in her husband Andrew Upton’s adaptation of Chekhov’s THE PRESENT at the Sydney Theatre Company this August, she wants to take the production on tour to the U.S. and London.

Nothing has been made official, but BroadwayWorld will keep you updated as we learn more!

Sydney Theatre Company’s official description of the play reads, “Variously known as Wild Honey, Fatherlessness, Play without Title and Platonov, Anton Chekhov’s first play was unknown at all until it was discovered in 1920 in a safety-deposit box 16 years after the playwright’s death. Roughly four hours of existing theatrical material revolving around Chekhovian tropes of lust, longing, vodka and shattered dreams, imbued with the familiar warmth, humour and insight, will be distilled into a new play by Andrew Upton, entitled The Present. All the drama is fuelled by near-nuclear collision of two soul mates, Mikhail Platonov (Richard Roxburgh) and Anna Petrovna (Cate Blanchett). Having last played opposite each other on stage in STC’s much-loved production of Chekhov’s Uncle Vanya, adapted by Upton, these two actors will dig out the sorrow, the heartache and the hilarious tragedy of love foiled for all the wrong reasons – money not the least of them. STC welcomes Irish director John Crowley, renowned for his work on the West End and Broadway, making his Australian debut.”

Academy Award winner Blanchett can be seen on the big screen in Kenneth Branagh’s CINDERELLA, as well as the upcoming films CAROL and TRUTH. She also recently appeared off-Broadway in THE MAIDS. Among her other recent stage credits are BIG AND SMALL, UNCLE VANYA, A STREETCAR NAMED DESIRE, THE WAR OF THE ROSES, HEDDA GABLER and more. [Source]
