APRIL 16-18, HOUR VARIES – THEATER – NEW SALOON – THREE TRANSLATIONS OF UNCLE VANYA AT THE SAME TIME (Act 1+2) – Sonya explodes, “I am so pitiful and unattractive!” and Sonya agrees, “how terrible it is to be plain,” while Sonya, alone, quietly wonders, “why aren’t I beautiful?” All three reach for the same vodka. New Saloon orchestrates three translations of Chekhov’s Uncle Vanya into a triple decker landscape spanning a sleepless night in a restless country household. Fifteen performers confront age, failure, work, and love, and multiple versions of every thought mutate and reverberate. Sweeping in scope and microscopic in focus, this prismatic new rendition cross-examines one of history’s most enduring tragedies.
