The Three Sisters: Staged Reading of Act III – by Anton Chekhov; translated by Randall Jarrell; directed by Dr. Sergei Tcherkasski. Among our many 50th Anniversary celebrations at the Lee Strasberg Theatre & Film Institute, Dr. Sergei Tcherkasski (St. Petersburg Theatre Arts Academy) is directing this production of The Three Sisters by Anton Chekhov. As a part of the special occasion, Ana Moioli (Irina) will read an excerpt written by Shirley Knight, who originated the role of Irina in the Broadway rendition. The staged reading on October 10 at 7pm will present Stanislavsky's original production plan of the play. It's worth mentioning that young Lee Strasberg attended the Moscow Art Theatre production of The Three Sisters in New York in 1923. Throughout his directing and teaching career, he spoke very highly of Stanislavsky's production; his own production of The Three Sisters was staged in 1964 and filmed in 1966. Join this extraordinary visiting director and his marvelous cast in this research project/staged work that will give you better understanding of both the Stanislavsky System and the Method! Rare archival photos and documents of the original Moscow Art Theatre production of 1901 will be presented and commented afterwards. Featured Cast: Ana Moioli (Irina); Joseph Ramondino (Andrei); Andre Vauthey (Kulygin); Alex Notkin (Vershinin); Henry Austin Shikongo (Tuzenbach); Sergey Petrov (Solyony); Ted Zurkowski (Chebutykin); Adil Zubair (Fedotik); Anand V.
