TaRaRaBOOM: A Three Sisters MishMash is the inaugural production of CRASH Theater Co. (www.crashtheater.com)
Olga, Masha, and Irina are stuck. After the death of their father, they long to return to a time and place that exists only in their memory. Their world is populated with living ghosts and broken clocks, and love isn’t quite strong enough to save them. But what difference does it make? Nothing even matters, anyway…
An exploration of what makes life absurdly serious and seriously absurd, TaRaRaBOOM uses Chekhov’s text along with original scenes, music, and movement to explore the timeless themes of the classic play with a modern sensibility. TaRaRaBOOM is an explosive reworking of and playful homage to one of Chekhov’s best-loved works. SPOILER ALERT: The sisters still don’t make it to Moscow.
TaRaRaBOOM: A Three Sisters MishMash. There’s no place like home.
