    Chekhov, Rendered Tongue Trippingly

    Ben Brantley

    May 4, 2012: Hey, guys, what say we have a Chekhov slumber party? We’ll put on our pajamas, open a few bottles of vodka and sit around and talk about how hopeless our lives are — maybe with Russian accents. Come on, it’ll be fun.

    Theater review: 'Uncle Vanya'

    Joe Dziemianowicz

    May 4, 2012: The first thing you notice is the husky brown bear hunched over on all fours, as if he (or maybe it’s a she) is sniffing out something about 2 feet off the ground.

    NY Review: 'Uncle Vanya'

    Andy Propst

    April 30, 2012: There are moments in director David Herskovits' new production of Anton Chekhov's "Uncle Vanya" that crackle with emotional lucidity. Conversely, other sequences border on surreal abstraction as this new, company-created version of the 1899 classic meditates on its history. The daring combination of styles should likely prove enormously satisfying for audiences familiar with the text but may be a bit opaque for first-timers.

    Realism, Naturalism, Whatever: Target Margin's Uncle Vanya

    Bess Rowen

    April 28, 2012: It is said quite often that Anton Chekhov believed he was writing comedies and the great beacon of realistic method acting Konstantin Stanislavski thought he was writing tragedies. I am not alone in believing that the truth lies somewhere in between, which is especially obvious today. Having said this, Uncle Vanya is explicitly labeled a comedy by Chekhov's own subtitle, though it is a different kind of humor than one usually sees today.

    Uncle Vanya

    David Finkle

    May 1, 2012: Since productions of Anton Chekhov's Uncle Vanya come along regularly, you can't blame Target Margin artistic director David Herskovits for trying something different in his revival, now on view at HERE.
