Anton Chekhov’s Three Sisters, my third production with MBCT; Modern But Classical Theatre, is only six months away! As you may know, I am currently pursuing my MA at NYU in Directing, and I am adapting Three Sisters in conjunction with my graduate thesis.
I am very excited about this project! After a full year re-writing Chekhov’s text, I am currently casting the ensemble and talking with designers. Rehearsals will begin in January for a run in late March, 2011. As story and production start to come together, I am also beginning the written component of my thesis, which looks at adaptations of classic stories through physical theatre. On both the artistic and academic end, Three Sisters is really beginning to take shape!
This extraordinary project comes with increased costs, and I am unable to handle to them alone. I am appealing to you for financial help, and all support is greatly appreciated. Costs for this project include the theatre rental, advertising, design materials such as fabric and set pieces, and, most importantly, financial thank you’s to the actors and designers who help create this project with me. Without outside financial help, MBCT will not be able to fully recognize Three Sisters on the stage. Your aid will also help the show expand from a one to a two-week run.
