Have you ever watched Taylor Schilling play Piper Chapman on “Orange is the New Black” and been like, “man, I bet she’d be a really great scene partner for ’Game of Thrones’ star Peter Dinklage”? No? Just us?
Well, regardless, fans of HBO’s genre sensation and Netflix’s prison sensation will be pleased to learn that Schilling will indeed star alongside Dinklage, in a play in New York City’s East Village. Dinklage will play the Rakitin to Schilling’s Natalya in Ivan Turgenev’s “A Month in the Country,” which will run from Jan. 9 to Feb. 15, 2015, at the Classic Stage Company. (You can sign up for their newsletter for ticket sale alerts.)
Dinklage’s character is in love with Schilling’s character and, well, you can ask Alex and Crazy Eyes how well that worked out for them.
