Russian Arts Theater and Studio’s THREE SISTERS
The main production of The Russian Arts Theater and Studio’s New York Chekhov Festival is one of the greatest masterpieces of the 20th century: Anton Chekhov’s Three Sisters. Critically acclaimed Russian director Aleksey Burago stages this tragicomic story about the decay of a privileged family grappling with the changes of a modern world. Following the death of their army officer father, the Moscow-born and bred Prozorov siblings find themselves living in a remote provincial town, trapped inside the memories of their glorious past. Only the proximity of a nearby artillery post and the company of its officers make their existence bearable. As they fumble for purpose amidst the clutter of awkward suitors, clumsy birthday presents, absurd squabbles and raging house fires, only one desire remains undimmed: to return to Moscow!
*Please note the Balcony Theater is not wheel-chair accessible.*
