About This Show

The Classical Theatre of Harlem, in partnership with Harlem Stage presents Three Sisters, by Anton Chekhov, directed by Christopher McElroen.

Considered by many to be one of the greatest plays ever written, Chekhov’s Three Sisters offers audiences a chance to consider the spiritual paralysis that keeps us from pursuing our dreams, the feeling of unlived lives and the longing for meaning. The result is an uncanny blend of the painful and trivial, the ordinary and the catastrophic. Conventional boundaries between comedy and tragedy are deliberately blurred, and things are seldom what they seem in one of the theatre’s most enigmatic and beautiful explorations of our pursuit of happiness.

Theatermania Review

| | February 18, 2009
Classical Theatre of Harlem’s revival of Chekhov’s play tends to skim the surface of the work rather than delving into its depths.
