THREE SISTERS: The third of Chekhov's Four masterpieces, this 1901 study of a small-town family's slow disintegration is also the richest and most passionate. Stanislavsky had a cricket chirping in the stove during the Act II love scene; what Downtown whiz kid Scott Elliott will have onstage, heaven and the district council only know. He's got plenty of good actors, though---among them Amy Irving, Lili Taylor, Eric Stoltz, David Marshall Grant, Betty Miller, and David Strathairn---plus a warm and playable translation by Lanford Wilson. Roundabout Theatre, 1530 Bway, 869-8400. (Feingold) $
