BWW Review: THR3E ZISTERS Is In Your Face Brilliance
by Frank Benge - Feb 6, 2017

THR3E ZISTERS by Baltimore-based playwright Lola Pierson was conceived and directed by Yury Urnov of D.C.'s Woolly Mammoth and was first mounted by Salvage Vanguard Theatre in 2015. That smash hit is currently receiving a remount at The Off Center. The original production won 4 Austin Critics Table Awards including Best Production of a Comedy. The show is part modern adaption of Chekhov's Three Sisters and part critique of Chekhov's work along with fresh literal translations of the original Russian text. It is also a bold criticism of the intrinsic conflicts of producing classical theatre in contemporary times. For good measure, THR3E ZISTERS spends a little time analyzing the transitioning roles of gender and performance in contemporary culture. (more...)

BWW Review: FAILURE: A LOVE STORY Opens the Block Party Series at the Kirk Douglas Theatre
by Shari Barrett - Apr 21, 2017

'Failure: A Love Story' chronicles the lives, loves and deaths of the three Fail sisters (June Carryl, Margaret Katch, and Nicole Shalhoub) and the one man with the double moniker Mortimer Mortimer (Kurt Quinn) who fell in love with each of them but not at the same time.

The 'failure' in the title refers to poor Mortimer's inability to ever marry any of The Three Sisters after falling in love with them, as the untimely deaths of The Three Sisters happen before any marriages can take place.
