Russian Arts Theater to Stage DR. CHEKHOV'S SWAN SONG AND OTHER PRESCRIPTIONS, 2/26-3/23
Previously presented at sold-out theaters, critically acclaimed Russian director Aleksey Burago returns with his signature staging of Anton Chekhov, this time at the historic Stanton Street Shul.
The story is about an aging actor who wakes up alone inside a theater and begins to recollect the past, confusing memories with beautiful hallucinations. A dream play, this animated and unusual show includes hilarious stories such as Death of the Government Clerk, Fat and Thin, A Chorus Girl, Surgery, A Little Joke, Daughter of Albion, Confessions and many more. Featuring legendary Russian actor Ernst Zorin of the Vakhtangov Theater, and set designer Olia Rogova of the Moscow Art Theater, a stunning mix of visual images are created from the simplest materials. Join us as we transform a two-level synagogue and present Chekhov as you've never seen him before.
The production runs Tuesday, February 26, 2013 through Saturday, March 23, 2013, playing Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday at 8PM. Sunday matinee show at 2pm.
