Uncle Vanya a Sold-Out Hit!
Actress and musician Di Zhu has just completed a four-week run of Uncle Vanya at The Stanton Street Shul, playing the role of Yelena Andrevna. The show was a sensation with audiences, and enjoyed a sold-out run.
" The admirable Ms. Di Zhu clearly shows the balancing act that Yelena must perform every day...even when she appears carefree, Ms. Zhu never lets us forget the emotional minefield that Yelena has to protect herself from."
