Williamstown, MA (July 26, 2017) – Williamstown Theatre Festival (Mandy Greenfield, Artistic Director) announces the first performance of the third Nikos Stage production of the 2017 season Wednesday, July 26 at 7:30 pm with the world premiere of Moscow Moscow Moscow Moscow Moscow Moscow (July 26—August 6).
You’ve known Olga, Masha, and Irina for nearly 117 years. But this summer, they are, like, unhappy for reals. Obie Award winner and Drama Desk nominee Trip Cullman directs Outer Critics Circle Award nominee and Theatre World Award winner Halley Feiffer’s world premiere: a contemporary adaptation of Chekhov’s Three Sisters. As our heroes search for meaning in their work and love lives—all the while dreaming of their dear Moscow—we are invited to examine our own existential longings and unrequited yearnings. Feiffer’s bold, unapologetically millennial, and bitingly-comedic spin on this Russian classic newly reacquaints us with the emotional contours of the beleaguered and beloved Prozorov family. You totes don’t want to miss it!
The cast includes Ako, Harvy Blanks, Glenn Davis, Tavi Gevinson, Rebecca Henderson, Gene Jones, Sheaun McKinney, Cristin Milioti, Thomas Sadoski, Jeanine Serralles, Ryan Spahn, and Micah Stock.
Moscow Moscow Moscow Moscow Moscow Moscow runs from Wednesday, July 26 to Sunday, August 6. A post-show Talkback is scheduled for Tuesday, August 1, as well as a Lawn Talk prior to the matinee on Sunday, July 30.
