Chekhov DVD Collection Dives Into the Master’s Icons

This fall’s star-studded production of Anton Chekhov’s The Seagull is sure to be the most talked-about play of the season. If you only read the Cliff Notes back in high school, the BBC’s Anton Chekhov Collection is a perfect crash course in the icon's masterpieces, including The Seagull, The Three Sisters, The Cherry Orchard, and Uncle Vanya. Sure, it’s a big time commitment, but you’ll be rewarded with terrific turns by actors like Anthony Hopkins, Judi Dench, Ian Holm, and Ralph Fiennes.
