Andre Gregory on “Vanya on 42nd Street”

Theater director Andre Gregory talks about putting on a series of spare, private performances of Anton Chekhov’s “Uncle Vanya” in a crumbling Manhattan playhouse in the 1990s, with actors Wallace Shawn, Julianne Moore, Brooke Smith, and George Gaynes. The project became the film “Vanya on 42nd Street,” directed by Louis Malle, which was recently released on Blu-ray and DVD for Criterion.
