Entertaining, Great acting, Great staging, Quirky, Great singing

See it if you would enjoy a new take on the Chekov classic with a very talented, young cast who act and sing well, using a creative set and the walls.

Don't see it if you want a straight play-this is a comedic take on the play, with good, new music and some zaniness, including all playing the 9th character

Clever, Entertaining, Funny, Thought-provoking, Intelligent

See it if You are a fan of Chekov’s Three Sisters and want to see it from a new perspective.

Don't see it if If you are a traditionalist and want your Chekhov as he wrote it.

“Fun and innovative...Maintains the plot and integrity of Chekhov’s original writing while adding pantomime, comedy, and original music...The entire cast...Brings a vivacious energy to the piece while simultaneously warning us against the dangers of complacency...Those who are still mourning the premature death of ‘The Great Comet’ would be wise to trek downtown...Though not nearly as large in scope, ‘Tararaboom’ brings a similar immersive quality and vibe."

“An innovative meme-ification of the modern classic...The play still tells the story of the Prozorov sisters...But ‘TaRaRaBOOM’ adds energy and dark humor to Chekhov’s tragicomedy...The best performances are the ones that capture the distinctive voices of Chekhov’s characters...The production would benefit from some fine-tuning...Despite the liberties taken and the helium injected into the play, ‘TaRaRaBOOM’ still manages to arrive at Chekhov’s heartbreaking ending.”
