Check the Other Desert Cities thread.  The consensus is that the Old Vic looks amazing in this configuration.

I agree... She has a great career ahead and her Olivier moment will come.

Zrinka... I think that may be it for her here..

Can't agree with you, Mr. B.  Zrinka is a wonderful actress who sings beautifully and is drop dead gorgeous.  Why on earth shouldn't she go on to have a big international career?  I fully expect her to do so.

It's ridiculously easy to update just about anything if you put your mind to it.  But why do it when the result is confusion, obfuscation and ludicrous anachronisms - especially in Chekhov's works which are close to perfect as they are?  It's all about the adaptor's and/or director's egos.

Sounds like Ms Reiss's last attempt at Chekhov at the Southwark, her misbegotten Seagull, in which a community of Russian exiles occupies their own little colony on the Isle of Man and yearns for a London that's only a ferry ride and a train trip away.  Does she really think she's improving Chekhov?
