If the old chestnut about life imitating art doesn't cross your mind a couple of times during A.R. Gurney's new comedy, Buffalo Gal, you may want to make a copy of The Cherry Orchard part of your subway reading this week. But brushing up your Chekhov isn't completely necessary to enjoy this funny little character study where the Russian playwright's story of the cultured aristocracy falling to the vulgar values of the middle class is replaced by a struggle for artistically conscious live theatre to survive while uninspired sitcoms rake in the bucks and offer immediate stardom.
