MET Presents The Cherry Orchard
On a sprawling country estate in turn-of-the-century Russia, an impoverished landowning family is unable to face the fact that their beloved home is about to be auctioned off. A local merchant presents numerous options to save it, including cutting down their prized cherry orchard, but the struggle between traditionalism and progress causes contention in the family. Tom Stoppard’s adaptation of Anton Chekov’s fourth and final masterpiece captures this classic tale for modern audiences.
Directed by Assoc. Artistic Director, Todd Lanker, The Cherry Orchard will open onThursday, January 17th and run through Sunday, January 27th!

    First of all I would like to say awesome blog! I had
    a quick question which I’d like to ask if you do
    not mind. I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your
    thoughts prior to writing. I’ve had trouble clearing my thoughts
    in getting my thoughts out there. I do enjoy writing
    however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are wasted just trying to figure
    out how to begin. Any ideas or tips? Appreciate it!

      Thank you for watching my blog. All of the press releases come from each theatre. The reviews and off topic editorials are mine. My background is News/Editorial. I taught high school journalism for 30 years. Many times I needed to help students find the words to grab attention for their stories, so this is just a natural thing for me. After I see a show, I generally post a quick note about it on Facebook as soon as I am home. Then, I sleep on it before I try to write a review. I want to let my audience know what I saw, how I reacted, and tell them just enough to allow them to make a decision if they want to see the show. There are times I need a day or two after seeing a difficult show. It happens. The big trick for me is to write in present tense and active voice as much as I can. Present tense takes the reader into your thoughts. It is happening as they read the story. It allows them to engage faster and gives direction to the story. Each line should follow the one before it. Hope that gives you some direction.
