In Halley Feiffer’s contemporary reimagining of Chekhov’s Three Sisters, Moscow Moscow Moscow Moscow Moscow Moscow, we follow the joys and heartbreaks of one lovably dysfunctional family over the course of several pivotal years in a world that proves to be eerily similar to the one we live in today.
The struggle is real for Olga (Rebecca Henderson), Masha (Theatre World Award winner (Chris Perfetti Sons of the Prophet), and Irina ( Tavi Gevinson): siblings who are NOT super thrilled to be stuck in rural Russia circa 1900 (laaame).
You’ve known Olga, Masha, and Irina for nearly 117 years. But this summer, they are, like, unhappy for reals. Obie Award winner and Drama Desk nominee Trip Cullman directs Outer Critics Award nominee and Theater World Award Winner Halley Feiffer’s world premiere: a contemporary adaptation of Chekhov’s Three Sisters.
As our heroes search for meaning in their work and love lives — all the while dreaming of their dear Moscow — we are invited to examine our own existential longings and unrequited yearnings. Feiffer’s bold, unapologetically millennial, and bitingly comedic spin on this Russian classic newly reacquaints us with the emotional contours of the beleaguered and beloved Prozorov family.
The cast also features Lucille Lortel Award nominee Ako (God Said This)
Tony Award nominee Steven Boyer (MCC’s Hand to God), Sas Goldberg (Significant Other)
Lucille Lortel Award nominee Greg Hildreth (Frozen), Matthew Jeffers (Light Shining in Buckinghamshire).
Gene Jones, Alfredo Narciso (“Manifest”), Theatre World Award winner Chris Perfetti (Sons of the Prophet), Ryan Spahn (Summer and Smoke), and Ray Anthony Thomas (Jitney).
