Vanya on 42nd Street

Directed by Louis Malle
United States, 1994
Comedy, Drama, Romance


In the nineties, André Gregory mounted a series of spare, private performances of Anton Chekhov’s Uncle Vanya in a crumbling Manhattan playhouse. These treasures of pure theater would have been lost to time had they not been captured on film by Louis Malle.
