The television shows “Game of Thrones” and “Orange is the New Black” have both taken the small screen by storm with their smart plotting, their gritty atmosphere, and especially the tremendous acting talent each one employs. Fans of these shows won’t want to miss an opportunity to watch their favorite stars on the live stage! This is your last chance to see Peter Dinklage and Taylor Schilling in Ivan Turgenev’s “A Month in the Country”. It’s playing at Classic Stage Theater (136 East 13th Street) off Broadway!
Love, Boredom, and Longing in the Country
Natalya Isanev, played by Taylor Schilling has far too much time on her hands. She has far too little to occupy her on her rich, older husband’s country estate. To divert herself, she encourages her most devoted friend, Mikhail Rakitin (Peter Dinklage) to fall further in love with her.
Then a handsome young tutor arrives, there to school Natalya’s young son for the summer. Vera, Natalya’s teenaged foster daughter, takes an interest in the new arrival, but so does Natalya herself. These longings stir up the placid country life at the household, and change everything for the better, worse, and humorous.
A Song of Orange and Black
Peter Dinklage has become a fan favorite as Tyrion Lannister in the stunning visual adaptation of George R.R. Martin’s Son of Ice and Fire books. He also recently portrayed Dr. Bolivar Trask in “X-Men: Days of Future Past”. His acting talent has won him a Golden Globe and an Emmy for Best Supporting Actor.
Taylor Schilling headlines the edgy prison program “Orange is the New Black”. She has been nominated several times for Golden Globe awards for Best Actress. Her acting credits also include a turn in Ben Affleck’s “Argo”.
