Three Sisters - 2011 - Off-Broadway


Classic Stage Company (CSC) under the leadership of Artistic Director Brian Kulick and Executive Director Jessica R. Jenen, presents its highly-anticipated production of Anton Chekhov's THREE SISTERS.

THREE SISTERS, Chekhov's immortal masterpiece of thwarted dreams, continues CSC's commitment to its Chekhov Initiative, which began five years ago during their FIRST LOOK FESTIVAL reading series. This continued with their first main production of The Seagull, starring Dianne Wiest and Alan Cumming, followed by their acclaimed production in 2009 of Uncle Vanya, which featured many of the cast members who will be appearing in THREE SISTERS.

The production, which began previews on January 12, features Maggie Gyllenhaal, Josh Hamilton, Jessica Hecht, Marin Ireland, Juliet Rylance and Peter Sarsgaard. Also featured in the cast are Ebon Moss-Bachrach, Anson Mount, Roberta Maxwell, Louis Zorich, George Morfogen, Paul Lazar, Gabe Bettio and James Patrick Nelson.

There are some plays, even enjoyable ones, that you forget almost instantly after seeing them. There are others you find yourself thinking of for days afterwards, still mulling them over, savoring their certain moments from them, revisiting their ambiguities and unlocking their mysteries. a?oeDon't Eat the Mangosa?? by Ricardo Pérez González is just that kind of play. In its gorgeous world premiere production at the Magic Theatre, a?oeMangosa?? slowly and subtly grabs hold of you, and has you constantly rethinking your assumptions about the characters and even the nature of the play itself. It is definitely a comedy, but it is also a kitchen sink drama, complete with an actual kitchen sink upstage center. It is grounded in the mundane details of family life, yet there are also occasional flights of poetry and imagery that are more akin to magic realism. It is sometimes tender and lyrical, yet there are startling flashes of darkness and violence as well. Family secrets are unearthed that make you re-evaluate relationships you thought you already knew, but it's never about the surprise factor of those secrets so much as it is about how the characters choose to act on their newfound knowledge. In the end, it's about transcending the effects of an ugly legacy that's been passed from one generation to the next.
