David Fox: Cameron, this is a significant threshold for us, yes? We’ve seen so much theater together, including a number by plays by writers in our particular sweet-spot: Williams, O’Neill and Inge, especially. But though we’ve talked about Chekhov for hours on end—and we’ve seen some of the same productions at different times—I don’t think we’ve ever attended one together.
Cameron Kelsall: I know we were both very much looking forward to a production of Three Sisters at New York Theatre Workshop later this spring, directed by Sam Gold and featuring an illustrious cast of theater and film veterans—among them Greta Gerwig (Masha), Oscar Isaac (Vershinin), Steve Buscemi (Chebutykin) and the invaluable Quincy Tyler Bernstine (Olga). Although the staging hasn’t been canceled yet, its future—like every other announced production at this moment—is uncertain.
DF: But YouTube to the rescue! And what a rescue!
