This was my first exposure to Chekhov and I'm not sure I'm a Chekhov person. I think I should've started with a more traditional production. As noted, this is avante garde and a 'radical adaptation'. I felt a little lost (make sure to read the playbill at intermission to see what happens in the missing acts) and a bit overwhelmed by the multimedia aspect. Enjoyed several of the performers. I will investigate other Three Sisters to compare and contrast now.

See or read the original before adventuring into any "modern" adaptations of this play. The acting was weak and the flow of Acts was frustrating (some were on video and some were acted out live). Video quality was extremely poor.
Acts were oddly...continued
