Product description


I acted in Curt s translation of "Uncle Vanya". It flowed like a river. It played like a dream. Do it.--Austin Pendleton


In these fresh, vibrant new translations of Chekhov's four greatest plays-Seagull, Uncle Vanya, Three Sisters, and Cherry Orchard-the brilliant theatrical translator Curt Columbus recaptures the master's open-ended simplicity. Curt Columbus loves actors and his new translations of Chekhov's four major plays are his gift to them. These are wonderfully actable, clear, and concise, and Columbus has perfectly captured Chekhov's unique blend of comic and tragic sensibilities.-Robert Falls, Artistic Director, Goodman Theatre.
