The Cherry Orchard

“HEARTBREAKINGLY FUNNY…Ms. Wiest gives her finest stage performance in years. Mr. Turturro uses his radioactive intensity to appropriately disruptive effect. Juliet Rylance and Katherine Waterston are especially affecting. This production is positively poetic. More than any version I have seen, it illuminates The Cherry Orchard. If you are lucky you will see a production like this one.” – The New York Times


“DIANNE WIEST AND JOHN TURTURRO BLOOM in this glowing production. The ensemble is on-pitch like a tuning fork.” – The New York Daily News


“A PERFECTLY SWEET ‘CHERRY,’ blessed with lovely grace notes that make this ORCHARD worth visiting.” – The New York Post


“SHATTERING…Brimming with some of the city’s finest young actors and more seasoned troupers, and staged with ferocious energy by Andrei Belgrader, this is Chekhov as it should be. Beautiful work by Daniel Davis, Juliet Rylance and Michael Urie. Wiest and Turturro are simply magnificent.” – Time Out New York, FIVE STARS


“Andrei Belgraders one-ring circus of a show includes the uproarious Roberta Maxwell and the great Alvin Epstein.” – New York Magazine
