chekhovshortsHelp celebrate Chekhov’s 150th birthday! The event kicks off with a food and drink reception, then an informal presentation by the producer of the show, followed by the production and a post-show Q&A with all the directors and members of the cast. Chekhov’s Shorts is a collection of short pieces penned for the Russian vaudeville circuit and other venues with each piece directed by a different director. Featuring farce, parody, slapstick, and the battle of the sexes (his favorite theme), you will leave this evening with an entirely new appreciation of Dr. Chekhov.
