"Spectacular...This new Vanya has a conversational smoothness that removes the cobwebs sticking to those other translations that never let you forget that the play was written in 1897... One of the most exquisite renderings of Uncle Vanya I've encountered." --Charles McNulty, Los Angeles Times

"Quietly arresting... A canny and colloquial world-premiere translation... A beautifully rewarding exploration of stunted lives still bending toward the meager sunlight, like wildflowers sprouting from a cracked sidewalk." --James Hebert, San Diego Union-Tribune
