The English Patient star Kristin Scott Thomas is to make her Broadway debut in a revival of ANTON CHEKHOV's THE SEAGULL.
The actress will play Arkadina opposite Peter Sarsgaard when the play opens on 1 October (08).
The production premiered at London's Royal Court Theatre last year (Jan07) and became the biggest-selling stage event in the venue's 50-year history, winning Scott Thomas a Laurence Olivier Award earlier this year (08).
The 1985 Chekhov play centres around the romantic conflicts and regrets of a group of actors, writers and artists on a Russian estate.
It was last seen on Broadway in a 1992 National Actors Theater production starring Tyne Daly, Jon Voight, Laura Linney and Ethan Hawke.
