Three Sisters, With Greta Gerwig, Oscar Isaac, Steve Buscemi, Lola Kirke, and More, Officially Postponed

New York Theatre Workshop was planning to present the Russian drama in 2020, and then again in 2023.

New York Theatre Workshop has indefinitely postponed its planned production of Chekhov’s Three Sisters, which was set to be directed by Sam Gold in a new version by Clare Barron.

Three Sisters was originally scheduled to run in summer 2020 with a star-studded cast led by Greta Gerwig as Masha and Oscar Isaac as Vershinin. It was then delayed until the summer of 2023, though schedules for the artists have proved too complicated to see the show to the finish line. It will not be replaced this season, though the theater hopes to eventually produce it. 

The company of Three Sisters, as announced in 2020, included Quincy Tyler Bernstine as Olga, Emmy winner Steve Buscemi as Chebutykin, Emily Davis as Natasha, Michael Benjamin Hernandez as Fedotik, John Christopher Jones as Ferapont, Lola Kirke as Irina, Anthony Michael Lopez as Rohde, Matthew Maher as Tusenbach, Chris Messina as Solyony, Aaron Clifton Moten as Andrei, Ben Sinclair as Kulygin, and Virginia Wing as Anfisa.

The production was to feature scenic design by Andrew Lieberman and Brett J. Banakis, costume design by Tony winner Clint Ramos, lighting design by Tony nominee Jane Cox, and sound design by Mikaal Sulaiman.
