Quirky, Masterful, Dizzying, Hilarious, Clever

See it if Vicious satire of Chekhov that I liked better than the original play. I see your misery & raise you 10! Terrific acting & comic timing.

Don't see it if You won’t enjoy an irreverent over-the-top take-off that has no subtlety. E.g. a fed up Irina: “What do I have, a golden pussy?”

Zany, Great acting, Clever, Ambitious, Hilarious

See it if You’ve ever seen a bad production of Three Sisters & would like to see it turned on its head, enjoy literary humor, general zaniness

Don't see it if You believe Chekhov is sacrosanct, hate absurdist comedy, not a fan of cross-dressing, want serious meaning in your plays

The New York Times

"Review: Chekhov’s ‘Three Sisters,’ Now with Upspeak and Emojis. Halley Feiffer’s 'Moscow Moscow Moscow Moscow Moscow Moscow' turns the master’s refined Russians into 'Mean Girls.'"

New Yorker
July 29th, 2019

"A Millennial Reboot of Chekhov, and 'Moulin Rouge!' on Broadway. Halley Feiffer translates 'Three Sisters' into Internet-speak, and Baz Luhrmann’s glitzy movie comes into its own onstage."

The Hollywood Reporter
July 18th, 2019

"Playwright Halley Feiffer adapts Chekhov's 1901 classic 'Three Sisters' in this raucously profane comic riff, originally seen at the Williamstown Theatre Festival."

Variety

"Despite looking as if it emerged from rehearsal games, Halley Feiffer’s farcical adaptation of Chekhov’s 'Three Sisters' is clever -- and fun."

"Looking for Elusive Dreams in 'Moscow Moscow Moscow Moscow Moscow Moscow.' Halley Feiffer's adaptation of Anton Chekhov's Three Sisters allows us to laugh at our own tragedies in its New York premiere with MCC."

Lighting & Sound America
July 19th, 2019

"…like being locked in with a houseful of sullen teenagers… if [Feiffer] is fed up with the presentation of women in Chekhov's plays, or what she sees as a lack of humor in Chekhov productions, or whatever, she is certainly entitled to her opinion. But it would be nice if she didn't mistake blatant vulgarity for wit."

New York Stage Review
July 18th, 2019

★★★★ "'Three Sisters, Halley Feiffer Style.' The actress/playwright keeps sisters Olga, Masha, and Irina front and center in her crafty, contemporary take on the Chekhov classic."

New York Stage Review
July 18th, 2019

★★★★ "'Everything's Different, Nothing's Changed.' Halley Feiffer's quasi-contemporary, wildly anachronistic, and genuinely affectingly retelling of Chekhov's Three Sisters reminds us that we all face disappointment, boredom, and lost love."

TheaterScene.net
July 30th, 2019

"Halley Feiffer's new comedy, the obsessively titled 'Moscow Moscow Moscow Moscow Moscow Moscow,' is an intermittently funny ten-minute parody of Anton Chekhov's Three Sisters. Unfortunately, it goes on for another hour and twenty-five minutes, tiresomely recycling jokes and shallow insights."

Theater Pizzazz
July 24th, 2019

"Halley Feiffer's fantastical fantasy and voyage into snarkyland, carried out with aplomb by director Trip Cullman of the master Chekhov's play 'Three Sisters' goes for the jugular of coarse language and debasement. Poor Chekhov!"

CurtainUp
July 18th, 2019

"Halley Feiffer's contemporary take on Checkov's 'Three Sisters'...It's a curious venture, sometimes uneasy, but often compelling. There are certainly risks entailed—the tone is likely to be offputting to traditionalists, while others may find its constructed hipness to seem pandering."

Front Row Center
July 22nd, 2019

Score: 91% "An irreverent take on 'Three Sisters.' Funny, wonderfully acted and directed, a lively piece. The two-sided stadium seating lends itself to the audience being intimately involved and allows the humor and quirky characters to spin this well-known tale in a newer light."

Front Mezz Junkies
August 6th, 2019

"The brilliantly twisted Halley Feiffer, the whip smart playwright...While being somewhat ridiculous in her repetitiveness of the title,... manages to shine a lightness and humor on the obstinate pathos of the Chekhovian structure and the sisters' dream."

New York Theater
July 18th, 2019

"loud, broad, hyperactive, foul-mouthed, unconventionally cast, aggressively playful and generally off-beat adaptation…The cast is full of New York actors who have an impressive track record of memorable performances…the bells and whistles of the production make it a challenge to engage in the hopes and fears of the characters."

Theatre's Leiter Side
July 30th, 2019

"Everything is staged with pinpoint timing, choral outbursts, outright stylization, and rhythmic precision. Nevertheless, much is loud and obvious, while little is honestly human and emotionally affecting…If you're planning to see Feiffer, read Chekhov first."
