What I liked

Solid ensemble bringing to life a smartly written play.

What I didn't like

There were some tech issues during the preview – I hope these kinks are ironed out

My overall impression

In short: Very witty and charming play that shows us the grass may not always be greener on the other side.

This is a smartly written play that fuses Checkov’s Three Sisters with the modern mythology of the Kardashians (and our society’s obsession with appearances and notoriety). Lucy Gillespie’s writing is sharp and hilarious throughout, which is adroitly directed by Katie Lindsay. The entire cast has spot on comedic timing and fully commit to their characters. Especially engrossing is Fabianne Meyer as Masha, whose dry wit brings wisdom and relief in the original, but here fuels her hunger for fame. Not wanting to give anything away, the ending is particularly poignant – a warning that hauntingly echoes its original source: “If we only knew… If we only knew.”
