Cate Blanchett Brings Uncle Vanya To Town

Cate Blanchett and her husband, co-artistic director Andrew Upton, launch the new Sydney Theatre Company season on Friday (September 25) in Sydney, Australia.

The couple will be bringing the gentle Chekhov play Uncle Vanya to STC next season starring John Bell, Richard Roxburgh and Hugo Weaving (The Matrix trilogy). That’s why Cate and Hugo were BFF last weekend!

“Good Chekhov is like being at an amazing dinner party, and I’d want to sit at a table with all of those men,” Cate said of her co-stars.

    She’s one of the most elegant woman in the business. If you haven’t seen Notes on a Scandal, find it and watch her performance. Absolutely riveting, so say the least.

    Love her refined style. The beach bum girls should take a lesson from her.
