This preview is different from the rest. I am going to tell you to go see the Maly Drama Theatre’s “Uncle Vanya”. But when I tell you that it is one of the most memorable and brilliant theatre performances that you will see, then I am speaking from experience as I already saw their show yesterday!
I have never seen anything like this play before. I am just so enamored of the way the play was staged, the way the characters came to life by the superb acting, the beauty of the play in its original Russian language and everything about the show that I felt that just going to one show wasn’t enough to write a review on it. So I am going again tonight.
As for the acting, it seems as if the actors were born to play the characters. The actors are just absolutely stunning. The female leads of Elena and Sonya are breath-takingly beautiful. I am just so in love with this production.
Anton Chekhov,a playwright who got recognition late, got everything right in this play. I will tell ya tons and tons about this play. Just promise me that you will see it.
