The visual concept—lacy scrims through which various parts of a house can be seen—recalls Tina Landau's 2004 Steppenwolf staging of Cherry Orchard. But this pointed, powerful Uncle Vanya (translated by Curt Columbus) stands on its own, maintaining a fine balance between hilarity and profundity and marking director Kimberly Senior as one of the best interpreters of Chekhov in these parts. Tom Hickey plays Vanya with an acerbic relish that never loses sight of the middle-aged bachelor's anguish, and Michaela Petro's spitfire Sonya may be the most heartbreaking take I've seen on this most heartbreaking of all characters. In a different time and place, Sonya would have the world at her feet. Instead, she's driven to her knees. --Kerry Reid
