'Three Sisters' compelling at Steppenwolf
Masha, Irina and Olga, central figures in Anton Chekhov’s “Three Sisters,” are bored by life in the country and long for the culture and refinement of big-city Moscow, which they left 11 years ago and where they fantasize about returning.
But their ennui and how they cope never gives theater-goers a dull moment in this outstanding production adapted by Tracy Letts and directed by Anna A. Shapiro at Steppenwolf Theatre.
The three women live in a house with their brother Andrey (Dan Waller), a scholar with a severe gambling problem; his hard-nosed wife Natasha (Alana Arenas) and a small battalion of servants. A host of colorful visitors and hangers-on also make regular appearances in this drama, which starts in 1900 and encompasses three years by the final curtain.
