According to Variety, the 1897 play follows Sonya and her uncle Vanya as they manage their family farm. Their lives are changed, however, when Sonya's ailing father and his wife move in, with the family forced to face some hard truths.
Also part of the production is Lila Neugebauer, who's on directing duties, with the script penned by Heidi Schreck.
The production will take place at Lincoln Center’s Vivian Beaumont Theater, with previews beginning on April 2, 2024, before the full run starts on April 24, 2024. Carell will play the titular character, with further casting set to be announced soon.
Tickets for the Broadway show will go on sale here on December 8.
Co-creator Greg Daniels recently addressed all the speculation, urging fans to temper their expectation. At least for the time being.
“Well, I think that it's very speculative,” he said of the reports while chatting with Collider for Prime Video's Upload. “The fact that it blew up based on one line in a puck piece was cool in the sense that the fans still care a lot. But the thing I would say is, when there's something to announce, I will definitely announce it.”
The creator had previously outlined his vision for a continuation, explaining to Collider: “It would just be sort of like an extension of the universe, you know what I mean, like the way [The] Mandalorian is like an extension of Star Wars.”
Uncle Vanya will hit Broadway in April 2024.
