Last summer, it was revealed that Tony winner Sam Gold was slated to direct a new production of Chekhov’s Three Sisters for the 2019-2020 season at off-Broadway’s New York Theatre Workshop.
One of the first of two stars that were originally announced was Oscar Isaac, who previously worked with Gold in the off-Broadway production of Hamlet. In addition to his history in theater, Isaac is also known for his screen work, most recently in the role of Poe Dameron for the Star Wars sequel trilogy. Isaac is set to portray Vershinin in Three Sisters, the commanding officer of the army base.
The second star was Greta Gerwig, who also has history with Gold in the off-Broadway production of The Village Bike. On the screen, the most recent accomplishment in Gerwig’s lengthy filmography is her writing and directing work on the Oscar nominated film Little Women. Gerwig will play Masha in Three Sisters, the strong-willed middle Prozorov sister.
As of today, the rest of the cast of Three Sisters has officially been revealed.

As stated by Broadway.com, “Three Sisters centers on the Prozorov family, who are frustrated by their small-town life and long to return to Moscow. But as relationships, duty and misguided optimism take hold, the family finds their dreams drifting further away.”
This adaption of Chekhov’s early 20th century classic is penned by Pulitzer Prize finalist Clare Barron.
