The Golden Dragon
A beautiful giant cricket is exploited by an ant, stewardesses 30,000 feet in the air speak to boat people in the Atlantic, a tooth lands in a bowl of soup, and a dead boy is carried thousands of miles home on a river.

It's set in your local takeout, wherever it and whomever you might be. Karla Boos directs.

Chekhov Celebration: Ivanov
Tom Stoppard's new translation directed by Andrew S. Paul in its US Premiere. A sort of comic Hamlet, Ivanov is overcome with inertia and self-disgust. His wife is dying and he feels nothing. He is drowning in debt and despair, and he does nothing. Is it him? Is it Russia? Ivanov was the twenty-seven-year-old Chekhov's shot at dispatching the 'superfluous man' of Russian literature, and in surrounding him with a brilliantly drawn set of provincial types he created some of the finest comedy he had ever written.
