Either you follow Chekhov's directions or you don't-- but you cannot have it both ways. In this production you will never believe that the three main actresses are sisters, that the action is taking place in Russia towards the end of the last...continued

This is a very interesting, unusual and intelligent production. The text adaptation is superb. I am very familiar with the original Chekhov's play and was impressed by the way the language was changed, so it sounds current. The director constantly...continued

First act not great; language not always convincing

The acting was fairly good - did not like all the adaptations that were made. Modernizing some of the language was not all bad, but they should have stopped themselves when including cuss words (even using the "F" word.) The vulgar language was...continued
