A Cherry Orchard Across The River


I traveled to Brooklyn tonight to see the new production of The Cherry Orchard in its second night at the Brooklyn Academy of Music. This fine Sam Mendes-directed show is the inaugural effort of The Bridge Project, which seeks to unite American and English theater actors, directors, and producers with performances scheduled on both sides of the Atlantic (as well as on far-flung stages in New Zealand, Singapore, Germany, and Greece). Tom Stoppard's new version of the Chekhov classic lent itself to a first-rate production, with excellent production values--the set design and lighting in particular were phenomenal--and a solid cast.
