Fathers and Sons at Donmar Warehouse June 5- July 26th

Calf, Cassidy and More Announced For Turner's FATHERS AND SONS At Donmar, June 2014

I have a very long list of ways to procrastinate and  lose a fair bit of time on NPR.org book related site which has sections like Book Concierge .  In the section “You Must Read this”, different authors recommend the “books you urge passionately on friends, colleagues and passersby“.   I recently read  Gary Shteyngart ‘s interview which said,  “My favorite novel is Ivan Turgenev‘s Fathers and Sons, a 200-page ravishing knockout of a book that explains just about everything you need to know about families, love, heartache, religion, duels and the institution of serfdom in 19th-century Russia, not to mention advice on how to seduce your housekeeper’s young daughter. In short, it’s a Russian masterpiece, one written so beautifully and with such economy, that when you finish reading it you feel a little shaken and a little stirred. A vodka martini on the front porch might be in order.”

Which made me think i should finally read this book, but i might just take a short cut and see the production at the Donmar this spring.

Casting has been announced and will include Seth Numrich who recently won the Best Newcomer at The Evening Standard Theatre Awards 2013, for his performance in ‘Sweet Bird of Youth‘ at the Old Vic in which he starred alongside Kim Cattrall.
