Confusing, Disappointing, Overrated, Quirky, Indulgent

See it if You like to be uncomfortable, seating, temperature. If you don't like Chekhov. I waited til intermission to,leave others didn't.

Don't see it if You have better things to do.

Absorbing, Exquisite, Great acting, Great staging, Profound

See it if Vanya gets the Nelson treatment - soft conversational intimate peek at life around a table. Great acting and staging brilliantly directed

Don't see it if You don’t like Nelson style as noted above or don’t relish chekhovian despair but try this one - it is so well done and accessible and true

Theatre is Easy
May 4th, 2017

"The Eagle Project's 'Uncle Abram' breathes new life into the Chekhov classic and offers a unique indigenous perspective on its environmentalist theme...Among the ensemble, Torres stands out as an impressive Esther...One disappointment might be the overly exaggerated costumes...'Uncle Abram' taps into the unique aspect of the importance of nature in Native American culture, which makes the piece more than just another Chekhov adaptation."

Stage Buddy
May 1st, 2017

"'Uncle Abram: A Reconstructed Uncle Vanya' could just as easily have been named 'Uncle Vanya Gets Woke'...The production is fascinating, seeing racial and social themes that are still with us today through the eyes of those in the first years of living together ostensibly as equals...Chekhov would have liked it."
