Using a quartet of older actors to imply a performance that has been going on, somewhere, for decades . . . (TONY)” THIS WAS THE END is a live remix of voice and image, Chekhov’s Uncle Vanya played back by a cassette tape DJ and mapped onto a wall from the Mabou Mines now demolished studio. Architecture and theatrical legacy conspire to ask: What do we do with our past? What can we make of it? Past and present converge as the wall comes home to Mabou Mines’ new theater.
