I just saw a Hi-Def live performance of THE CHERRY ORCHARD by the Moscow Art Theatre. I studied under one of the members from years ago when I was but a young girl in New York City. What a joy to see all the work those actors put into this performance….or not to see it because it was made to seem (even with minimalist scenery) like Life was unfolding in front of us. This is seamless between playwright, director and cast. This kind of work we never see here now. Although we never saw a cherry tree on stage, we saw it through the eyes of the actors. It is where I hope to be one day….in a cast in a play that sings in our blood, not just our immediate appetites.
