Three Sisters

Three Sisters was the first production I was involved with at University. I played Andrei. He has three sisters.

Act One ends with an interrupted kiss between Andrei and his future wife, Natasha. My abiding memory of the production was that the actress playing Natasha in the early scenes evidently found me so repugnant that she begged those doing the interrupting to cut the kiss as short as possible.

They made her wait.

It was also during this show that Mike Everhard successfully made a room full of people laugh hysterically and then feel very, very guilty with his deployment of a comedy stutter. The awesome power of the man is a wonder to behold.
