My Uncle Chekhov is Coming to Town!
This summer, acclaimed Russian director Aleksey Burago returns with My Uncle Chekhov, a heart-warming, larger-than-life comedy celebrating the short stories of Anton Chekhov. Interwoven around one of Chekhov’s most beloved tales, The Darling, it follows the life of sweet Olenka, a woman who takes on the opinions of the men she loves.
On Olenka’s journey of self-discovery, she crosses paths with twelve of Chekhov’s best anecdotes, including Fat and Thin, Questions Posed by a Mad Mathematician, Death of a Government Clerk, A Little Joke, Minds in Ferment, Daughter of Albion, A Happy Ending and more. Join the cast of nine colorful characters as they fumble through love, loss and the beautiful absurdity of life.
July 14th to July 31st at the West End Theater (86th and B’Way)
