Directed by Tony nominee Michael Greif (Rent, Grey Gardens), the production will continue through July 27. The cast boasts Aya Cash, Rosemarie DeWitt and Jessica Hecht in the title roles with Cassie Beck, Michael Cristofer, Stevie Ray Dallimore, Cary Donaldson, Manoel Felciano, Jonathan Fried, Stephen Kunken, Peter Maloney, Roberta Maxwell, Keith Nobbs and Joe Tippett.

In the Chekhov classic, press notes state, "three sisters (Cash, DeWitt and Hecht) crave a life that is more satisfying than their own and yearn for the passion and excitement of a future in Moscow. The naiveté of unrequited love and the inherent passage of time compel us all to grapple with the delicate question: Are the choices made in life always the choices most desired?"

Three Sisters features set design by Allen Moyer, costume design by Clint Ramos, lighting design by Ken Posner, sound design by Walter Trarbach and original music by Michael Friedman. Stephen M. Kaus is the production stage manager.
