Ambitious, Well staged, Choppy/uneven, Long, Absorbing

See it if you like physical comedy (there's a lot), singing (of various quality), and sketches. Perf lasted 2 hrs w/no intermission. Needs cuts.

Don't see it if you want a story arc or a flawless ensemble (some excellent actors, some not). Clever staging, set. Drawn out scenes. Overall enjoyable.

Enchanting, Delightful, Refreshing, Romantic, Funny

See it if Variety of cute slice-of-life vignettes. Physical comedy. Some music/dance. Entertaining and well-performed. Some bits funnier than others

Don't see it if You're looking for something more intense or profound. You don't enjoy physical comedy.

Theatre is Easy
February 27th, 2018
For a previous production

"An evening of amusing sketches...Chekhov’s short stories, which seemed funny and naïve when I read them as a child, appear in a new light after Burago's risky staging, with the help of the beautifully nuanced performances of the entire cast...Some trimming around the edges would only make the point clearer. But even in the current production, Chekhov’s wit is handled with care and great skill. This is something not to be missed!"

Theater Pizzazz
March 7th, 2018
For a previous production

"A deeply funny love song. A masterclass in guiding extremely talented actors into a work of art no one should miss...It is a masterpiece created by an important artist of our generation...Conducting this work is the profound director, Aleksey Burago. Like any great artist, his ideas are to be wrestled with...If you believe in theatre as art, then 'Lady' is a must-see. Do not miss your chance to witness this important work."
