Quotes & Highlights

“…it was impossible for me not to enjoy moments of Terry Schreiber’s fast-paced and energetic production of_ The Cherry Orchard._..what I found myself watching…was a group of young actors diving headlong into the emotions of the text, proudly throwing themselves up against the walls of Chekhov’s emotional architecture.” -Theatre Is Easy
“I left the theatre as if seeing this classic piece for the first time…Schreiber brilliantly navigates the balance between comedy and tragedy that makes this play, like all of Chekhov’s best work, so human and so humane.” -nytheatre.com
“A true test of ability comes in the challenge to perform the work of an iconic playwright well…the respective players at the T. Schreiber Studio can safely hold their costumed heads high as they accomplished this tremendous feat with seeming ease.” —Review Fix
