Theater: Governer's Island / Ferry departs 10 South St, New York, New York, 10004

Synopsis: 

Step into 19th century Russia as Stein explores Dostoyevsky's prophetic vision in the tumultuous years leading up to the revolution. The sedate liberalism of the fathers is kindled into fire by the radically anarchist sons, while the demons of the title, in Stein's own words, "represent nothing but the diseases and madnesses of a young generation that had lost its faith in religion, and had become a victim of ideology."

    The Foment Is Fermenting and Vice Versa

    Charles Isherwood

    July 12, 2010: The wild-eyed dreamers and furtive schemers of Fyodor Dostoyevsky’s novel “The Demons” don’t just leap off the page: they grab your lapels with white-knuckled fists and glare into your soul, whispering their fervent hopes about a new world order. They spout dire predictions for the future of Russia while staggering around your apartment gesticulating wildly, knocking over furniture and scaring the neighbors.

    Theater Talkback: Doing Your Homework

    Charles Isherwood

    July 23, 2010: At Peter Stein’s marathon production of “The Demons” on Governors Island the other weekend, I must have seen half a dozen patrons toting around their battered-looking copies of the Dostoyevsky novel on which the show was based. Since I myself had just finished plowing through the chunky novel, I guessed that they had not quite made the deadline, and were hoping to churn through those last wild chapters during the lunch and dinner breaks.

    The Demons

    Marilyn Stasio

    July 11, 2010: Any theater thinking about hosting a marathon along the extravagant lines of Peter Stein's 12-hour adaptation of Dostoevsky's "Demons" should consider this: It isn't enough to stage the thing in an empty warehouse. To snare the necessary sponsors and desired aud, it really helps to secure a spectacular setting, as Lincoln Center does here by staging the event on Governors Island, situated in the middle of New York Harbor and affording such additional amenities as magnificent skyline views of lower Manhattan and a magical trip home -- in the company of the performers -- on the midnight ferry.
