New York Theatre Workshop has now confirmed that due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, it will not return to its scheduled programming in the 2019-2020 season. NYTW Artistic Director James C. Nicola and Managing Director Jeremy Blocker commented: “We are heartbroken to have to end our season prematurely. These productions and residencies along with readings and workshops we were meant to be producing represent important collaborations with theater-makers we deeply value. We look forward to being back in a room with them, and with our audiences, when it is safe for us to do so.”
UPDATE: This production has been indefinitely postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
New York Theatre Workshop concludes its 2019-2020 Off-Broadway season with a new production of Chekhov's Three Sisters, directed by Tony Award winner Sam Gold and starring Academy Award nominee Greta Gerwig and Golden Globe winner Oscar Isaac.
NYTW Usual Suspect and Tony Award winner Sam Gold revisits Chekhov following his acclaimed 2012 production of Uncle Vanya that was heralded as “luminous” and "the most intimate and engaging exploration of Chekhov's bleak comedy.” This production of Three Sisters reunites Gold with two previous collaborators: The Village Bike’s Greta Gerwig and Hamlet’s Oscar Isaac.
