About the show

In Halley Feiffer's contemporary reimagining of Chekhov’s "Three Sisters," we follow the joys and heartbreaks of one lovably dysfunctional family over the course of several pivotal years. More…

The struggle is real for Olga, Masha , and Irina: siblings who are NOT super thrilled to be stuck in rural Russia circa 1900 (laaame).

Directed by Trip Cullman, this new black comedy tackles the absurdity of the privileged class and the power of love in a fresh twist on a classic tale that reveals itself to be far more relevant, than like, ever before.

Thought-provoking, Clever, Chekhov's underpinnings, Absurdist, Broad humor

See it if you like comedic riffs on tradl plays. MMM plays 3 Sisters for laughs. Often succeeds, some cheap gags in script/direction. Strong acting.

Don't see it if you want all the emotnl resonance of Chekh.. Needs editing. Ends flatly. Still follows original closely; retains philos musings/plot & chars

Also There's little restraint here in either script or direction. Sometimes... Read more Read less

Creative, Needs polishing, Edgy, Funny

See it if It's a fun adaptation of Three Sisters. Creative and slightly absurd.

Don't see it if The show is uneven and some scenes get too saccharine in contrast with the whole.

Also At 2hrs with a 15 min intermission, the show really loses (including a... Read more Read less

Poorly staged, Slow, Occasionally funny, Dizzying, Disappointing

See it if You want to see a great cast in an odd attempt at a spoof of Chekhov’s Three Sisters. Some funny moments. Less than two hours with a break.

Don't see it if You want a show that makes sense or has a purpose. Staging is bad. Lighting is bad. Actors often face away from you, can’t hear. Dimly lit.

Also I wanted to like this show. Especially after LOVING the recent “Life S... Read more Read less

Ambitious, Slow, Overrated, Disappointing

See it if You need a play that needs some rework before opening. Based on Chekhov's three sisters is good at times. A spoof on three sisters.

Don't see it if Actors have backs to audience at times and hard to hear. Lighting is not good in this play. Some rework and this could be good.

Edgy, Great staging, Great acting, Dizzying, Ambitious

See it if Feiffer's modernist, psycho/sexual riff on Chekhov's classic Three Sisters is both satirically hilarious & wildly indulgent w/ a superb cast

Don't see it if Chekhovian poignancy still pervades the evening largely due to Cullman's expert direction; keeping the lid on all the flaming id on stage

Amusing, Indulgent, Great acting, Disappointing

See it if u want to see a 1st-rate cast of Off-Bway all-stars in Feiffer's arty, campy, silly, overlong, repetitious spoof of Chekhov's Three Sisters.

Don't see it if you expect a comical exploration of Chekhov's work that elucidates or enlightens beyond merely making obvious observations & jokes.

Slightly smug, Refreshing, Quirky, Entertaining, Clever

See it if You want a modern take on a classic play. You enjoy anachronistic flair. You like intimate staging. You like absurdism.

Don't see it if You prefer to see Chekhov's Three Sisters. You prefer more sincere re-imaginings: the over-the-top-ness is fun though at times it's too much

Restorative, Repetitious, Scabrous, Smart

See it if you’d like to see a “3 Sisters” scrubbed of sentiment & excavated for potential subtext.

Don't see it if you are looking either for the Chekhov original or for a new stand-alone work of theater.

Also I found this hard to score though I knew just what I felt about it. Ha... Read more Read less

Reformulation of chekhov's "3 sisters" as an absurdist comic assault; not for those who value nuance in their humor

See it if converts Chek's "Three Sisters" into absurdist world where characters are hilariously frank & vicious

Don't see it if turns characters into cartoons; sheds no new light on play's central concern: dreams of escape from life's existential hell are empty

Also This play is going to divide audiences. Some may view it as a comic to... Read more Read less

Slow, Quirky, Great acting, Fun, Funny

See it if You’d love a modernish retelling of Three Sisters that’s funny, hip, and all around enjoyable.

Don't see it if Chekhov’s plays are slow and boring to you, no matter how they’re retold or reimagined.

Indulgent, Quirky, Excruciating, Disappointing

See it if Many people in the audience were laughing and seemed to enjoy it although I did not. Many accomplished NYC stage actors in the cast.

Don't see it if so overwritten, obvious jokes. I didn't find it amusing at all.

Also what is with all these Chekhov rewrites? How many do we have to see? I... Read more Read less

Clever, Entertaining, Funny, Great acting, Great writing

See it if You are a fan of Chekhov’s 3 Sisters. This is an outrageous parody by Hailey Pfeiffer. A little flat at times. Still in previews.

Don't see it if You expect the real Three Sisters play. Are unprepared for sometimes raunchy, confusing behavior. Timing is a little off.

Also I first saw this play at the Williamstown Theatre Festival. A few of t... Read more Read less

Great acting, Entertaining

See it if Superb cast. Funky modern-day retelling of Chekhov story. Story is simple: everyone is full of despair.

Don't see it if You don't like Whitney Houston's "I Wanna Dance with Somebody" playing on the piano. You don't like lots of F-bombs.

Ambitious, Raunchy, Great acting, Funny, Clever

See it if you want to see a modern deconstruction of a Chekhov classic that leaves nothing hiding in the unconscious. It's funny but still touching.

Don't see it if you don't like revisionist versions of classics, coarse language or simulated sex.

Also The provocative casting involves crossing gender, changing race and ad... Read more Read less

Quirky, Funny, Refreshing, Great acting, Entertaining

See it if You like a modern take on a Russian classic. Absurd and occasionally over the top. Funny and well cast. Surreal and bizarre.

Don't see it if You don't like your theater SUPER stylized. It is an absurd play and if you go with it it's a joy. However you must be willing to jump in.

Edgy, Great acting, Funny, Entertaining, Absorbing

See it if A more contemporary version of Chekov's 3 Sisters; absurdly bleak & hysterical; great writing, casting & directing; intimate setting.

Don't see it if you don't like profanity, Chekov or the modernization of classic plays; can be over the top but that's the point; needs a 10-15 minute edit.

Intelligent, Great acting, Clever, Ambitious, Absorbing

See it if Tinkered famous sibling trio source material with adroit marriage of playwright, actor, and director. Then Chekov invited to officiate.

Don't see it if Perhaps unnecessary, but aren't we accustomed to all the ripe distillation by now? Coarse talk.

Also Title is reinforcement of the wearisome city that appears too frequent... Read more Read less

Chekhov take-off on steroids

See it if Halley Feiffer is a smart comic writer. Her absurdist Chekhov is naughty and hilarious. Expertly cast with some of NY's best comic actors.

Don't see it if There are so many jokes and so many fine performances -- Steven Boyer, Rebecca Henderson, Ryan Spahn, Chris Perfetti, Matthew Jeffers

Also some bizarre lighting including a brief fluorescent bit... Read more Read less

Quirky, Intelligent, Great writing, Great acting, Funny

See it if you love Chekhov, or if you hate Chekhov. This play makes fun of the classic author but also gives credit where credit is due.

Don't see it if don't like seeing men in female roles, or small venues.

Intelligent, Great writing, Funny, Entertaining

See it if Love Chekhov especially the Three Sisters. A modern adaption that goes beyond just translation. Very contemporary. Actors commit to it.

Don't see it if Like classic plays as classic plays. Very now so language may be too vulgar for some.

Overrated, Dizzying, Avant-garde, Confusing

See it if you like avant-garde productions that try to combine disparate styles of theatre.

Don't see it if you prefer shows that don't feel like a mish-mash of styles. Chekhov and Honey Booboo on the same stage? No thanks.

Also I feel like the playwright and director had a bag of presentation styl... Read more Read less
