The Cherry Orchard - Broadway

$57-$142

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 (Diane Lane) and her family's return to their fabled orchard to forestall its foreclosure, the play 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. First produced in Moscow in 1904, Roundabout's new adaptation promises to breathe fresh life into this towering tale.

Featured Reviews For The Cherry Orchard


'The Cherry Orchard' review: Diane Lane can't bring this revival to life - NJ.com
Karam's is not a completely invalid interpretation, even if it doesn't quite hang together (Chekhov, of course, was writing about the decline of the Russian aristocracy at the expense of the rising lower classes). Far more problematic is that Godwin doesn't seem to know if he wants this production to feel classical or modern, bleakly comic or just plain bleak, and so we get a jarring mishmash of styles and approaches.

Theater review: 'The Cherry Orchard' with Diane Lane - Bergen Record
The "new version" of "The Cherry Orchard" that opened Sunday at the American Airlines Theatre is a gray, dramatically underdeveloped affair that makes a poor argument for rethinking classic plays.
