West End Theatre at Church of St. Paul and St. Andrew (212) 868-4444
WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
After a sold-out and acclaimed run of Uncle Vanya, award-winning Russian director Aleksey Burago returns with The Bear & Other Jokes of Anton Chekhov. An encounter between a self-dramatizing widow, a timid butler and a barbaric debt collector quickly turns into a comic battle of wit, money, pistols and love. Featuring live original music, this show also includes three of Anton Chekhov's lesser known short stories. This summer, we invite you to join The Russian Arts Theater & Studio at the beautiful West End Theatre and experience our signature Chekhov!
