Quick Takes

Bye 'Vanya,' hello 'Oleanna'

February 10, 2009|Lisa Fung

The Mark Taper Forum has scrapped plans to present "Uncle Vanya" this season and will replace it with a production of David Mamet's "Oleanna." Bill Pullman and Julia Stiles will star in the story of a university professor and one of his students.

"Uncle Vanya" fell apart after its anticipated star, Alfred Molina, dropped out.

Tony-winning director Doug Hughes will stage "Oleanna," which is scheduled to run May 28 to July 12, with a June 5 opening.
