  • Who knew Chekhov could be so sexy?
    — San Francisco Chronicle
  • Appel's translations of Chekhov's masterworks are fresh,insightful, and sit easily in the mouth of the American actor.
    — Ray Dooley, Acting Program Director, UNC-Chapel Hill
  • I was immediately struck by the boldness of her choices with the language—it is passionate, earthy, and desperate.
    — Jasson Minadakis, Artistic Director, Marin Theatre Company
  • Libby has captured the roiling emotions of Chekhov’s major plays in language that is both muscular and elegant, both spare and utterly profound. These are translations built by a theatre-maker for theatre-makers. Actors and directors especially will see them for the gift that they are.
    — Joe Haj, Artistic Director, The Guthrie Theatre
