by Michael Dale - Mar 17, 2019

Perpetual Students: A Historic Look at Chekov's THE CHERRY ORCHARD on Broadway
by Alexa Criscitiello - Oct 30, 2016

The Cherry Orchard is Anton Chekhov's masterpiece about a family on the edge of ruin-and a country on the brink of revolution. The story of Lyubov Ranevskaya and her family's return to their fabled orchard to forestall its foreclosure captures a people-and a world-in transition, and presents us with a picture of humanity in all its glorious folly. By turns tragic and funny, The Cherry Orchard still stands as one of the great plays of the modern era.
