James Wilson takes a look at Chekhov + Turgenev at Sheen Center:
One of the last performances I attended before the theatres shut down in March 2020 was About Love, Will Pomerantz's adaptation of Ivan Turgenev's novella, First Love. The play, with half of its original cast intact, is currently running in repertory with a new adaptation, also by Pomerantz, of Anton Chekhov's Three Sisters at the Sheen Center. The pairing, dubbed Chekhov + Turgenev, offers a rare opportunity to experience the works of two literary lions of Russian modernism in tandem.
