REVIEW: Learn about ‘Russian Transport’

Daniel Oreskes appears appropriately harried as the increasingly troubled Misha. Raviv Ullman aptly portrays Alex as a cocky guy who discovers he’s not so smart after all. Sarah Steele does nicely by the innocent Mira as well as three other girls who figure into the story.

Scott Elliott, the director, stages the play with gradually increasing speed on a two-level setting designed by Derek McLane that depicts the family’s comfortably modest home. The red lighting provided by Peter Kaczorowski for the drama’s closing seconds implies that misfortune is about to descend upon them all.

“Russian Transport” continues through March 10 at Theatre Row, 410 W. 42nd St., New York. Call (212) 239-6200 or visit www.thenewgroup.org.
