See the New York Premiere production of Moscow Moscow Moscow Moscow Moscow Moscow, based on Checkov‘s Three Sisters, written by Halley Feiffer, and directed by Trip Cullman, in the Susan & Ronald Frankel Theater at The Robert W. Wilson MCC Theater Space (511 West 52nd Street-between 10th and 11th Avenues). The cast features Ako, Steven Boyer, Tavi Gevinson, Sas Goldberg, Rebecca Henderson, Greg Hildreth, Matthew Jeffers, Gene Jones, Alfredo Narciso, Chris Perfetti, Ryan Spahn, and Ray Anthony Thomas. The creative team includes scenic design by Mark Wendland, costume design by Paloma Young, lighting design by Ben Stanton, and sound design by Darron L West.
An irreverent take on Three Sisters. Funny, wonderfully acted and directed, a lively piece. The two-sided stadium seating lends itself to the audience being intimately involved and allows the humor and quirky characters to spin this well-known tale in a newer light. If you’re a Chekov purist, don’t go see it as it may disappoint, but if not, do go and enjoy.
