Sisters Three (New York, NY)
New York Times Critics Pick, Sisters Three. Directed by Peter McNerney and starring Elana Fishbein and Elena Skopetos, Sisters Three is a fast paced, multi-character comedy about a family’s reluctant reunion. Without sets or costumes to hold them back two actors seamlessly intertwine over thirty distinct characters into a heartfelt rollercoaster ride of dysfunction, redemption and baby pumas. Don’t just take our word for it, here’s Elise Czajkowski from the New York Times: “Elena Skopetos and Elana Fishbein play more than a dozen characters each in this joke-dense play about three adult sisters reluctantly convening for a family reunion, only to discover a new side to their family’s complicated history. Written by Ms. Fishbein; Ms. Skopetos; and the show’s director, Peter McNerney, the play — with its incredible pace — is matched by the fantastic performances of its two leads.”
