this is a difficult play to convey the complexities of each character. Though there were moments of good acting as a whole I think it fell short.

Most of the acting was very good, but some weak leading roles.

I have read three interpretations of this production, and still don't understand it.

The play itself was enjoyable. The actress who played Masha was a little weak and therefore not well understood but the rest of the cast was very good

Description

Director Anna D. Shapiro notes, “Three Sisters is a play about a certain kind of paralysis. It is about all of the things we construct in the future that keep us immobilized in the day. There are unhappy marriages, unrequited love, duels and really nasty in-laws. And everybody’s trying to get somewhere else. And it’s funny. Funny in the way that serious human folly can be funny.”

The parking structure for the theater is rather modest.  Please allow ample time for parking.
