A world premiere Playwrights' Arena and Los Angeles LGBT Center co-production of THREE by Nick Salamone

THREE is a queer meditation on Chekhov’s THREE SISTERS which explores the themes of longing, love and the meaning of life. THREE offers a snapshot of the Prozorov family and their loved ones on four different days in four different eras in a fictional army base town in the far north of the upper Midwest.

  • "If at first the barebones elements of this production and the playing space it inhabits begin to overpower the tale, it doesn’t take long for the Homeric nature of Nick Salamone’s script and the brilliance of Jon Lawrence Rivera’s direction, exceptional ensemble cast, and design team make the Davidson/Valentini feel as though Three could be playing at the Ahmanson—which I hope someday it actually will." Ticket Holders LA
  • "THREE utilizes an intentionally diverse cast to reframe Chekhov’s existing ideas about change and longing for the past to poignant effect, directly addressing themes of racism, prejudice, and gender fluidity." Stage Raw
