THE THREE SISTERS (1985) Dallas Theater Center (Dallas TX) Writer: Chekov Director: Suzanne Shepherd role: Vershinin Cast: Candy Buckley, Linda Geringer, Jerri Leer, Norbert Weisser
Dallas Observer: “The most affective performances are exquisitely wrought by Candy Buckley and Norbert Weisser. As Vershinin, Weisser sees the danger in his love for the professor’s wife, but throws himself into a passionate affair... The natural styles of Buckley and Weisser are poignant to the point of embarrassment. We are no longer seeing actors playing roles, we are voyeurs witnessing a devouring infidelity.”
