Chekhov favored the realism of small moments and seemingly undramatic situations in which his characters find themselves musing and revealing their humanity. In UNCLE VANYA we discover a tangle of unrequited love, frustration, fear, nobility, and pettiness in nearly every character residing at a country estate. Director Yuri Rasovsky and his cast convey with sensitivity the many dimensions of these people in this reissue of a 1985 audio production. Brian Murray, for example, resists the urge to stereotype Doctor Astrov. We see the doctor as a full human being: his romantic longing for Elena, his indifference to Sonya, his compassionate idealism, his silly pontificating, his embarrassing drinking. Mary Lou Rosato similarly captures the complexity of Elena. A beautifully paced performance. G.H. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 02]
