Went with three of my friends, we all loved it!
I think Lyubov Andreevna Ranevskaya (Julie Garfield) looked and acted the way you'd imagine her after reading The Cherry Orchard in original (I am Russian, fluent in Russian, grow up on Russian Classics).
Wonderful actors, friendly staff.

This is my first review and I feel compelled to write it. Being Russian myself, fluent in both language and culture, I was bitterly disappointed by this portrayal of The Cherry Orchard. It represents an intentional mauling of this great classic. ...continued
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 by Anton Chekhov
A New Adaptation by Carol Rocamora
Directed by Terry Schreiber
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.
Julie Garfield will star as Madame Ranevskaya. During her 40-year career, she has appeared alongside Tony Award-winner George C. 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.
About the Ticket Supplier: T. Schreiber Studio
The T. Schreiber Studio began in 1969 with Terry Schreiber teaching classes twice a week to twelve actors in a converted loft on the Upper East Side of New York City. Enrollment increased and the group began mounting productions in what were the early beginnings of New York City’s Off-Off Broadway movement and building its reputation of high quality productions and performances. The studio continued to grow, adding more faculty, more actors, and more plays and in the mid 70’s, drama critic Walter Kerr’s glowing review in the New York Times of Schreiber’s production of The Trip Back Down, brought the Studio much attention and packed houses. The Trip Back Down then moved to Broadway and John Cullum (Northern Exposure) was signed to do the lead. Throughout the 1980’s and into the 90’s the T. Schreiber Studio continued to produce good actors and good theater, adding Betty Buckley to its prestigious faculty and residing at 83 East Fourth Street, the burgeoning street of Off-Off Broadway. During that time Terry Schreiber continued his own directing career with two more Broadway shows: Devour the Snow and K-2, and numerous regional theater productions providing more casting opportunities for studio actors.
In 1996 the Studio moved to its current, renovated multi-use space on the 7th floor of 151 West 26th Street in New York’s lively Chelsea neighborhood. Classes and productions run continuously throughout the year.
