• Stage Russia HD: “Uncle Vanya”
by Anton Chekhov
Saturday, Jan. 13, 2018, 2 p.m.
Ethel M. Barber Theater
This unique adaptation is about what Chekhov’s characters think and what they admit to only at moments of emotional turmoil. They are at times tongue-tied or overly brutal, but their revelations break out of them fervently, desperately, just as a man breaks out of a stuffy room into the open air. A Golden Mask Winner for Best Drama, “Uncle Vanya” features the inimitable Sergey Makovetsky as Voynitsky.
Presented in Russian with English subtitles, the running time is three hours (with one 15-minute intermission).
