    Here s a play within a play about a production of Chekhov It s a satire of the state of modern theater and it s relationship to film and television All of the roles go to women in the kind of show that often features largely male casts , and the characters are diverse and funny in many different ways, so all of that is a plus I particularly liked the rather broadly written director and the television star who turns out to havedepth than her co stars expect Like Vanya and Sonia and Mas Here s a play within a play about a production of Chekhov It s a satire of the state of modern theater and it s relationship to film and television All of the roles go to women in the kind of show that often features largely male casts , and the characters are diverse and funny in many different ways, so all of that is a plus I particularly liked the rather broadly written director and the television star who turns out to havedepth than her co stars expect Like Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike, you don t really need to know the Chekhov to enjoy it While both plays satirize different things, and can be enjoyed on their own merits, this isn t quite as good as Durang s Chekhov mash up in my opinion Martin gets off to a good start, but the last act here falls a little flat in comparison Still, this deserves to be producedoften, especially by companies with strong female comedians who go underutilized in a theater world with a disproportionate number of parts written for men

    We saw this play performed four times on four consecutive nights at Alfred University in Alfred, NY loved it In a nutshell, it s about the state of theater today particularly in England America It is multi faceted with differing political points of view, cultural exchanges gender issues cleverly intertwined I loved the biting wit, irony humor It s a play within a play within a play is based on The Three Sisters by Anton Chekov which we thoroughly enjoyed at Steppenwolf in Chicago We saw this play performed four times on four consecutive nights at Alfred University in Alfred, NY loved it In a nutshell, it s about the state of theater today particularly in England America It is multi faceted with differing political points of view, cultural exchanges gender issues cleverly intertwined I loved the biting wit, irony humor It s a play within a play within a play is based on The Three Sisters by Anton Chekov which we thoroughly enjoyed at Steppenwolf in Chicago this Summer

    I just performed a staged reading of this play a couple weeks ago It s a funny but serious commentary on the less than stellar state of affairs for women in theatre, all within the framework of a satiric take on Chekhov s Three Sisters If you participate in theatre, you will be amused by the many in jokes sprinkled throughout the script If not, you ll still most likely be amused even if you re not sure why Of course, one cannot ignore the irony that Jane Martin is a pseudonym widely believ I just performed a staged reading of this play a couple weeks ago It s a funny but serious commentary on the less than stellar state of affairs for women in theatre, all within the framework of a satiric take on Chekhov s Three Sisters If you participate in theatre, you will be amused by the many in jokes sprinkled throughout the script If not, you ll still most likely be amused even if you re not sure why Of course, one cannot ignore the irony that Jane Martin is a pseudonym widely believed to be used by Jon Jory, a man So in many way, the play ends up being the butt of its own joke

    Enjoyed the writing style and flow of Martin s words A lot of great monologues throughout the show I liked that it was purposefully trying too hard, however the character Joby was a tricky one and always is when there is an audience plant with lines Would be interested in directing it at a college level somewhere It seems to fit the issues and excitement of that age For some reason, reminded me of Caryl Churchill probably the all female cast.

    funny satire another play about theater, but self aware of that category as self indulgent 6F cast, great comic roles especially the actresses who playthan 1 character endless choices minimal set, costumes important.
