    Breaking the Fourth Wall to Let Chekhov Out

    Ben Brantley

    December 4, 2011: Is anybody listening, or am I just talking to myself? That question lurks behind pretty much everything everyone says in Andrei Belgrader’s heartbreakingly funny production of Chekhov’s “Cherry Orchard,” which opened Sunday night in a Classic Stage Company production.

    December 4, 2011: Dianne Wiest, who starred in Classic Stage Company's 2008 production of The Seagull, returns to close out the CSC's cycle of four Chekhov productions in The Cherry Orchard, the Russian playwright's great 1904 drama in which the old social order is chopped down while a bewildered, depleted aristocracy dithers and mourns.

    ‘The Cherry Orchard’ yields an indifferent harvest

    Michael Sommers

    December 4, 2011: Classic Stage Company, which has done fairly well by Anton Chekhov’s major plays in its four-year Chekhov Initiative (and last winter’s “Three Sisters” with Maggie Gyllenhaal and Peter Sarsgaard was superb), concludes the series with a so-so revival of “The Cherry Orchard” that opened on Sunday.
