Previously presented at sold-out theaters, critically acclaimed Russian director Aleksey Burago returns with his signature staging of Anton Chekhov. An aging actor 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, a stunning mix of visual images are created on two different levels.
- About The Russian Arts Theater & Studio:
The Russian Arts Theater & Studio was founded in 2004 by Artistic Director Aleksey Burago and actress Snezhana Chernova. They brought forward their extensive study and experience in hopes of creating a New York theater company that would pass on the rich theater traditions and practices of Stanislavsky and Michael Chekhov, as well as introducing lesser-known Russian repertoire to American audiences.
The company has provided many critically-acclaimed shows for the New York community, including adaptations, new translations, short stories & plays—-from Hans Christian Andersen to Anton Chekhov to Tennessee Williams.
