“Chekhov has shed over us a luminous vapor in which life appears as it is, without veils, transparent and visible to the depths”. Virginia Woolf
Examiner.com – The Cherry Orchard Reviewed by Laura Tull
“A Comedy and Tragedy that is Worthy of a Young Audience.” Julius West’s translation of Anton Chekhov’s “The Cherry Orchard” maintains the true intent of the playwright as a Comedy mixed with Tragedy. The play is performed in traditional set and costume, but the language is one relatable today to the modern man with themes of Money, Love and Freedom.
“…the new production at Pacific Resident Theatre gracefully reflects Chekhov’s funny, sad, gentle wisdom.”
“Jackson gets good performances from her ensemble and manages all of the various plotlines with a steady hand.”
“This is a respectful and enjoyable production of Chekhov’s classic. One should appreciate it while it’s here, because, like the lovely cherry orchard, it will soon be gone.”
