Peter Dinklage and Taylor Schilling to star in Off Broadway play this winter

Ahh, just what we’ve all been waiting for: Tyrion Lannister and Piper Chapman on stage together! It sounds like a TV lover’s dream mash-up to have Emmy darlings/hopefuls Peter Dinklage (Game of Thrones) and Taylor Schilling (Orange Is the New Black) matched together, but dream no more: The duo will topline the Classic Stage Company revival of Ivan Turgenev’s A Month in the Country, beginning previews in January 2015.

The play—part of an already starry CSC 2014/15 season that also includes Peter Sarsgaard in Hamlet and Chris Noth in Doctor Faustus—concerns a young country wife named Natalya (Schilling) who becomes interested in the tutor of her young son, much to the chagrin of her good friend Rakitin (Dinklage), who is already taken with her. The production will mark the NYC stage debut of Schilling and offer up Dinklage’s first theater performance since 2007, when he appeared in the Ethan Hawke-directed play Things We Want. And it appears to be a family effort of sorts, as Month will be helmed by Dinklage’s wife, theater director Erica Schmidt (Humor Abuse).

Given the small environs of Off Broadway’s Classic Stage and its thrust setting, if you want the best chance to see these TV jailbirds in action, sooner is preferable to later. A Month in the Country begins previews at NYC’s Classic Stage Company on Jan. 9, 2015, with a limited engagement through February 15.

'Orange Is the New Black' costume designer Jennifer Rogien on styling Litchfield Prison

Most of the time spent on screen in Orange Is the New Black is in uniform, in orange (or khaki) as the title suggests. Inmates look alike. Guards look alike. There’s little variety. Why, then, would the show need a costume designer?

It’s a question that Jennifer Rogien, costume designer of the Netflix hit, often faces. She sees merit in the query, telling Entertainment Weekly how seemingly ridiculous her position could be construed on a very simplistic level. But, within this community of orange, Rogien says, “There is a whole world of tiny details to worry about.” READ FULL STORY

'Orange Is the New Black' at PaleyFest: Five things we learned from the panel -- VIDEO

The Dolby Theatre stage was filled with a beautifully eclectic group of women when the cast of Netflix’s critically acclaimed series Orange Is the New Black sat down for their first PaleyFest panel. Well, it was almost all women. Joining creator Jenji Kohan and stars Taylor Schilling, Laura Prepon, and Natasha Lyonne, among others, were two of the men of the series: Jason Biggs and Michael Harney. However, the talk of the night mainly focused on the diversity of the show and the bond the cast mates have outside of their prison set. From the amount of giggling that went on throughout the night, it appears they know how to have a good time together sans screwdriver (more on that later!).

From a new inmate to explanations of some of the differences between the original book and series, the panel revealed some exciting things for OITNB fans eagerly anticipating the show’s return to the streaming site in June. Here are five things we learned: READ FULL STORY

'Orange Is the New Black' star Taylor Schilling takes the EW Pop Culture Personality Test -- VIDEO

Even before Netflix began streaming Orange Is the New Black, an original 13-episode series from Weeds creator Jenji Kohan based on Piper Kerman’s memoir of the same name and starring Taylor Schilling (The Lucky One) as a woman who thinks she’ll use her prison sentence to get toned for her wedding and read her Amazon wish list, a second season had been greenlit. Combine that knowledge with our review referring to it as “very funny and occasionally quite moving,” and you can feel good about binge-watching the show this weekend.

Schilling’s personal marathon history includes devouring three seasons of Downton Abbey in two weeks. She offers these tips: “You have to remember to take a shower. Have snacks. And it’s nice to bring another person into the mix for different chunks of the journey,” she says. “Have a friend come over for a couple episodes. You don’t have to do it all alone.”

Also, when you need a two-minute break, watch Schilling take the EW Pop Culture Personality Test in the video below.
