“A startlingly visceral immersive adaptation…with a humor and humanity that would surely please Chekhov…An examination of race and the legacy of slavery that feels urgently relevant in the wake of the violence last month in Charlottesville, Va...It’s a play whose notions of tradition and inheritance and ownership — of property rights that included the rights to human bodies — have far deeper reverberations than they usually do in ‘The Cherry Orchard.’” Full Review
See it if You would enjoy a cleverly staged adaptation of The Cherry Orchard set in Reconstruction or like political history plays.
Don't see it if You need pure Chekhov or don’t want to think about the socio-political implications of race and class in America.
Also Well staged in the Commander’s House on Governors Island.
