Anton Chekhov wrote several one-act plays for the Russian version of the Vaudeville (variety) show. These were broad comedies with broadly drawn characters, lots of yelling, and lots of laughing and crying done the way that only Chekhov could do.
What if a really far-out vaudeville troupe from way out in the hinterlands of Siberia, was to put on an evening’s entertainment?
They bring in an Emcee, card girls, comedians, singers, even a live bear act, and combine it with three classic Anton Chekhov one-act plays to equal a zany evening of off-the-wall entertainment with a definite Russian flare.
The three one-acts chosen to accompany the mad-cap vaudeville antics are
The Marriage Proposal and
The Harmful Effects of Tobacco.
All three are directed by Attic Producing Director James Carey and produced by Christine Stumpov and Robin Royvich. The vaudeville company includes Amber Flamminiovich, Jacqueline Axtonov, Doug Meyersovich, Mike Parkovich, Blanche Ramirezovich, Vesna Tolomanskavich, and, of course, Anton The Bear.
The Attic will hold an opening night press party, open to the public, on Friday night, September 21st, immediately after the performance and a little soft-shoe to boot.
