Publisher Comments:

Chekhov's masterpiece in a full cast performance starring Tessa Thompson, Jennifer Westfeldt, Sarah Zimmerman and Jon Hamm. Meet Olga, Masha, and Irina, warm and cultured young sisters who were reared in the exciting hubbub of Moscow, but have been living in the dull, gossipy backwaters of Russia for far too long. With their father's passing, and the ordinary grip of day-to-day life slowly suffocating them, the urge to return to the city with its rich and exciting life rises to a fever pitch. First performed in 1901, The Three Sisters mixes humor and heartbreak beautifully and is a perennial favorite of actors and audiences alike.

A L.A. Theatre Works full cast performance starring:

Tessa Thompson as Irina

Jennifer Westfeldt as Masha

Sarah Zimmerman as Olga

Jon Hamm as Vershinin

Josh Clark as Solyony/Rode

Josh Cooke as Kulygin

Dan DonohueTuzenbach

Pamela Dunlap as Anfisa

Marc Halsey as Fedotik

Rebecca Mozo as Natasha

Robert Pine as Chebutykin/Ferap

Review:

"Chekhov's complex drama about the fate of an aristocratic family in free fall is brought to life wonderfully by director Jenny Sullivan and an impressive cast that includes Tessa Thompson as Irina, Jennifer Westfeldt as Masha, and Sarah Zimmerman as Olga. The cast maintains its enthusiasm and energy throughout the production. Although listeners may initially find it challenging to distinguish voices and names without visual queues, this is easily overcome thanks to the quality of the performance and its distinctively rendered characters. Performed live, this audiobook includes audience laughter and sounds from the stage, which elevate the listening experience and highlight the theatrical nature of the production. The cast members are not standing in recording booths and reading into microphones — they have an audience engaged in their performance, and this sparks the listener's imagination."
