"Uncle Vanya" at the Soho Rep

Annie Baker, who adapted Chekhov’s classic “Uncle Vanya,” discusses the play, along with Reed Birney and Michael Shannon, who star in it. Variety critic Marilyn Stasio called Baker’s version “a fresh rethinking of the material from the perspective of a modern mind.” “Uncle Vanya” is playing at the Soho Rep, and has been extended through August 26.
