In the waning days of the Soviet communist regime, the state-run Kuzlov Theater in St. Petersburg, Russia is having hard times. Its audience is shrinking, the leading lady is past her prime, and they don't even have soap. But a new production of Anton Chekhov's "The Three Sisters" will surely turn things around. As the theatre and its denizens cope with the changes brought about by perestroika, even Chekhov's masterpiece isn't safe from the ravages of capitalism as it becomes an American style musical titled "O My Sister!" The quick-change room, where dressers provide the fast costume changes necessary during a play's action, serves as a metaphor for the "quick changes" in the economic, moral and philosophical systems of Russia brought about by the downfall of communism.
The Quick Change Room is presented through special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc.
