Ambitious, Confusing, Disappointing, Slow, Indulgent

See it if You have a good grounding in Anton Chekov's works

Don't see it if If you aren't a Russian drama scholar

Absorbing, Entertaining, Great acting, Romantic

See it if You want to see a play about a man in love with someone who falls in love with another. You want to see a good play with great performers.

Don't see it if You don't like simple staging in intimate spacing. You are not interested in a love story.

"A new way to look at Chekhov. Dietz’s text goes beyond the two characters and their content from the source material by exploring contemporary themes...The situation is funny for these characters as their saga never stops. But it stays stagnant in the dramatics...A captivating play to Chekhovian scholars. If the source material or the characters are not to your liking, 'Variations' may feel like a tedious theatrical exercise. Thankfully, this production was anything but."

"Owen is great as Treplev, making him charming and sympathetic...Stiefel, on the other hand, had a hard time keeping up emotionally with him at the beginning. Good news is she catches up...'The Nina Variations' is a character study that can be satisfying, but challenging at times to sit through...There is little happiness in its running time, and is not really entertaining. Instead, we get an analysis of the human condition...It is not a show I would watch again, but I’m glad I saw it."
