Quantum’s Karla Boos takes the stage as Madame Ranevskaya in Libby Appel’s celebrated version of Anton Chekhov’s greatest play. Joining Karla in the cast are long-time collaborator Peter Duschenes (Richard II; The Merchant of Venice) and in a Pittsburgh first, the entire theatrical Lehane/Klatscher family. Directed by Katie Brook, the outdoor summer location is fabulous OneValley, near Hazelwood Green, a slick co-working space that references its past along the Mon.
