Every Good Boy Deserves Favor is by Tom Stoppard and Andre Previn and is directed by Jiri Zizka. Meet Ivanov, an oddball trying to survive the totalitarian society of the Soviet Union in the '70s. He has something in his head you don't: an orchestra! Ivanov may be a nut, but his cellmate in the asylum is anything but; he's a political dissenter desperate to save his young son. To tell their story, acclaimed playwright Tom Stoppard teamed with noted classical composer Andre Previn, who contributed a spectacularly powerful and lush musical score.
