Cate Blanchett and Richard Roxburgh star in Sydney Theatre Company’s “explosive” (NPR) new production of The Present.

The Present unfolds over the course of a raucous weekend birthday celebration in the Russian countryside. Old flames ignite in this passionate and bitingly comic play.

Entertainment Weekly cheers “Cate Blanchett and Richard Roxburgh have a combustible chemistry. You won’t take your eyes off them!” “Ms. Blanchett is extraordinary in her Broadway debut” (The New York Times), giving a “brilliant” (New York Magazine) and “virtuosic performance” (The Guardian). She’s matched by Richard Roxburgh, who is “irresistible” (Variety), “disarmingly charming”(Newsday) and "fiercely charismatic” (The Hollywood Reporter) in this new adaptation of Anton Chekhov’s first play. “Loaded with the wit, wisdom and great gobs of humor that marked the masterpieces to come, The Present must not be missed.” (NY1).

Performed by a “dazzling ensemble” (Newsday) of Australia’s finest actors, The Present is adapted by Andrew Upton and directed by John Crowley (Fox Searchlight’s Brooklyn). Experience “theatrical lightning” (The Huffington Post). Now on Broadway through March 19 only.
