Absorbing, Great staging, Refreshing, Intelligent, Clever

See it if You love Chekhov and would like to see a dynamic, clever and very musical version of a classic play up-close and personal in a tiny theater.

Don't see it if The multi-culti cast feels un-Russian, or the ingenious shoe string production seems amateurish to you, but true to the spirit of the play.

"The time-honored piece is well respected under Aleksey Burago’s direction, while maintaining an exciting newness. Character interactions and intentions are classically Stanislavski; while dance, music, and artful movement innovate in revelatory ways....A welcomed addition...Take part in this adventurous foray into traditional drama before the church doors close."
