Cate Blanchett: Rave Reviews for 'Uncle Vanya'

Cate Blanchett takes her kids Roman and Ignatius for a stroll around town on Friday (August 12) in Washington, D.C.

The 42-year-old Aussie actress is in town while performing the play Uncle Vanya at the Kennedy Center.

The opening night of Cate‘s show was earlier this week and she is receiving rave reviews for her performance.

Ben Brantley of the New York Times says that Cate “confirms her status as one of the best and bravest actresses on the planet, with a go-for-broke yet artfully contained performance that keeps sabotaging her own natural elegance.”

    I saw the play last night.
    It’s really almost humbling to see such great talent.
    She has such presence on stage, you can’t keep your eyes off her, even in sceanes when she is not supposed to be the center of attention.
    The whole production is awesome, not just her.
    I live in DC, but people came from Texas, Masatchusess…it’s really amazing what a draw real talent is.

    Cate, the Great !
    I saw the play in Sydney. I’m from Brazil. I travelled 20 hours to see Cate on the stage and the beautiful Sydney.
    It was fantastic.
    Her kids are very cute.

    I’m seeing it on the 26th, I’m do excited! The reviews are extraordinary, I’m SO thrilled for Cate & the rest of the stellar cast! Oh..and I’m traveling from TX to see it, too! It’s not 20 hours like Trin (that’s awesome btw!) but it’s worth a trip up North to see Cate on stage. I’m convinced she is THE best actress ever to have graced the stage. I’m saying that after witnessing her brilliant performance as Blanche DuBois in Streetcar back in 2009!!!
