A Chekhov and Shaw Comedy Night

About This Show

The show features new translations of Chekhov’s Swan Song, a brief play in which an actor finally takes a sobering look his life after he has just given his final performance, featuring Tony winner George S. Irving and John Cariani (Something Rotten!), and A Tragedian in Spite of Himself, a comedic take on the roles we allow ourselves to undertake in life, featuring John Cariani.

The show also features Press Cuttings, Shaw’s short comedy about the struggle for women’s rights and the ever-present power of the press. Two dynamic women hold a top-level general captive‚Ķ but losing his heart is the one thing he never expected. The production features Tony winner Fritz Weaver, John Cariani, Jackie Hoffman, Cynthia Harris, Christine Pedi, and Diane Stilwell Weinberg.
