  Three Sisters at Studio Theatre

Three Sisters

Studio Theatre
1501 14th St. NW Washington

One of Anton Chekhov's masterworks, Three Sisters is a humorous and affecting tale centering around the once-privileged members of the Prozorov family. After the death of their army general father, three sisters feel constrained by the smallness of life in their provincial Russian town. Attempts to improve their crumbling social status lay bare the larger forces that loom over the entire area. Melodrama turned inside out, Three Sisters is a story of yearning and ordinary life -- where little seems to happen, but all is revealed. See Chekhov's masterpiece at the Studio Theatre - Mead Theatre in Washington, D.C.

Washington Post - Somewhat Recommended

"...A bigger issue, though, concerns the production of "Three Sisters," directed by Jackson Gay: It not only drags - it's also a bit of a lightweight drag. Our encounter with the passive, aristocratic sisters and their stultifying existences has to live in an air of compelling distress. "It's hard to say what is 'off' about them," Anfisa the maid, played expertly by Nancy Robinette, rightly observes in "No Sisters." Which means that if the ennui and melancholy of Olga (Bridget Flanery), Masha (Caroline Hewitt) and Irina (Emilie Krause) are not leavened by some bittersweet sense of complexity and mystery, there is nothing much to savor."

DC Metro Theater Arts - Highly Recommended

"...Naturally the conceit of having two plays, Three Sisters and No Sisters performed simultaneously upstairs and downstairs, sounds like a marketer's dream. But it is important for each production to stand on its own merits. Jackson Gay's Three Sisters more than lives up to the tradition of Chekhov productions at the Studio, and her steady, mature hand is one I hope to see more often on Washington's stages."

"...Studio Theatre is to be commended for taking on the challenge. Under the direction of Jackson Gay, the exuberance of the production almost but not quite overcomes the underlying sadness and frustration. It also moves a long play at a quick place."

"...Studio Theatre's Three Sisters is a thrilling experience on its own, but doubling down to spend intimate time with many of the same characters in No Sisters (ideally on a weekend when you can see both the same day) is truly rewarding."
