About this show

This August, renowned Russian director Aleksey Burago and the Russian Arts Theater and Studio returns with an encore run of Lady With a Lapdog With Jokes and a Happy Ending, a heartwarming, larger-than-life comedy celebrating the short stories of Anton Chekhov.

While vacationing alone in the Crimean sea resort of Yalta, a Moscow playboy quickly finds himself having another affair — this time with a married woman who wanders along the shore with her pet dog. However, their lives are soon uprooted as they realize they have found true love. Interwoven around their romance are 10 of Chekhov's most hilarious anecdotes, including Fish, Death of a Government Clerk, Confessions, A Chorus Girl, Overspiced, A Little Joke, Daughter of Albion, Surgery, Elements Most Found in Short Stories, A Happy Ending, and Life is Beautiful.
