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

Written in 1904, The Cherry Orchard presaged the waning influence of the Russian aristocracy and the social upheaval that reverberated throughout the country a decade later.

Scott and Harvey Keitel in The Death of a Salesman, and been featured in the films Love Story and Goodfellas. Garfield received the Theatre World Award for her performance as Sonya in the Roundabout Theater production of Uncle Vanya. She is the daughter of Academy Award-nominated and Broadway actor John Garfield.
