  • NEW YORK TIMES REVIEW OF Uncle Vanya (2012)

    A Fresh Breeze in Pastoral Russia

    Charles Isherwood

    June 17, 2012: Experiencing a little discomfort is probably an appropriate way to immerse yourself in the world of Chekhov. It’s not the thunderclap of tragedy that plagues his characters, after all, but nagging, incurable heart cramps. The funky, fresh new production of “Uncle Vanya” that opened on Sunday night at Soho Rep brings this point home to the audience with unusual immediacy.

    Slow ‘Vanya’ not vital to Chekhov your list

    Elisabeth Vincentelli

    June 17, 2012: You'll never be as close to a production of Uncle Vanya as you will to director Sam Gold's welcome-to-the-country-house staging at Off Broadway's Soho Rep (through July 22). In fact, you may never be that close to any theatrical production. Most of the audience is arranged — not very comfortably (ladies, don't wear skirts) — on carpeted risers within mere feet, sometimes inches, of the actors, the furnishings, and the electrical outlets.

  • THEATERMANIA REVIEW OF Uncle Vanya (2012)

    Uncle Vanya

    Brian Scott Lipton

    June 18, 2012: The sense of living on top of another, with no room for escape, has always been central to Anton Chekhov's masterpiece Uncle Vanya, but it's never been as brilliantly conveyed as in Sam Gold's highly affecting production of this seminal work, now at Soho Rep. Credit here is due not just to Gold, but also set designer Andrew Lieberman, who has placed the audience firmly inside the Russian country dacha -- by building a low-ceilinged wood roof, which tops a smallish playing area (outfitted in thrift shop-looking furniture), while viewers sit all around on cushioned, carpeted risers

    MATT WINDMAN

    June 17, 2012: Remember those high school basement parties where you and some friends would lie around on the carpet floor and drink your parents' booze? Soho Rep's unusually intimate production of Chekhov's tragicomedy "Uncle Vanya" is rather like being invited to such a party, but one that is populated by very unhappy adults.
