News   Three Sisters, With Gyllenhaal, Hecht, Hamilton, Sarsgaard and More, Begins Off-Broadway Run
 
Moscow is far out of reach — again — starting Jan. 12, when Three Sisters, the Russian classic of thwarted dreams, begins a starry Off-Broadway run directed by Austin Pendleton. Maggie Gyllenhaal, Jessica Hecht and Juliet Rylance are the siblings who long for a more cosmopolitan life.

The Classic Stage Company production of Anton Chekhov's play continues to March 6, representing an extension of two weeks at CSC's East 13th Street home. Opening night is Feb. 3.

The cast features Gyllenhaal (as Masha), Hecht (as Olga), Rylance (as Irina), as well as Anson Mount as Solyóny, Gabe Bettio as Róhde, Josh Hamilton as Andréy Prózorov, Marin Ireland as Natásha, Paul Lazar as Kulýgin, Roberta Maxwell as Anfísa, George Morfogen as Ferapónt, Ebon Moss-Bachrach as Baron Túzenbach, James Patrick Nelson as Fedótik, Peter Sarsgaard as Vershínin and Louis Zorich as Chebutýkin.

Pendleton also directed Gyllenhaal and Sarsgaard in CSC's acclaimed 2009 production of Chekhov's Uncle Vanya. This new production of Three Sisters features a translation by Paul Schmidt.

Three Sisters is the 1901 play about thwarted dreams, featuring three provincial sisters longing to be back in their beloved Moscow.

The creative team includes set designer Walt Spangler, costume designer Marco Piemontese, lighting designer Keith Parham and hair designer Paul Huntley. Sound design and original music are by Christian Frederickson and Ryan Rumery. Three Sisters will play Tuesdays through Fridays at 8 PM; Saturdays at 2 PM and 8 PM and Sundays at 2 PM. Tickets are $75 for weekday performances and $80 for weekends. For tickets and information, visit ClassicStage, or call (866) 811-4111, or (212) 352-3101, or visit the CSC box office at 136 E. 13th Street.
