Summary

The Moscow Art Theatreis 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 *Ivanov. 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.
