The discussion will focus on radical theatrical interpretations of the writings of Anton Chekhov. Among the panelists is Obie-winning playwright Annie Baker whose take on Uncle Vanya was a recent hit at Soho Rep. Another panelist, Kristen Kosmas, will be bringing There There -- focusing on the female understudy of Christopher Walken going on for him in a one-man version of Three Sisters -- to P.S. 122 in January.
Annie-B Parson and Paul Lazar of Big Dance Theater will also be part of the panel, discussing The Man in the Case, which stars Mikhail Baryshnikov, and is adapted from a short story by Chekhov about a narrow-minded schoolteacher who is obsessed with following rules. New Museum artist-in-residence Tina Satter of Half Straddle will discuss her upcoming Seagull (Thinking of you), to be presented in conjunction with P.S. 122 in January.
