The Moscow Art Theatre is still recognized as having more impact on modern theatre than any company in the world. This lavishly illustrated and beautifully produced facsimile edition of a Russian journal from 1914 documents, photographically, the premieres of all of Anton Chekhov's plays produced by the Moscow Art Theatre, including:
*The Seagull,
*Three Sisters
*Uncle Vanya
*Cherry Orchard
Edited by renowned theatre historian Vera Gottlieb, the volume also reproduces - for the first time in an English translation - introductions by Stanislavsky's collaborators Nemirovich-Danchenko and Efros. With 175 unique photographs, this is a significant contribution to our understanding of the origins of today's theatre.
