In this comedy-turned-thriller that took off-Broadway by storm, a rowdy, hot-tempered Russian family living in Brooklyn is on a quest to achieve the American dream. But things turn a bit topsy-turvy when Uncle Boris arrives from the old country, embroiling them in his mysterious business venture and forcing them to decide just how far they're willing to go for success. With writing so slick as to seem like sleight-of-hand, Russian Transport morphs from a funny comedy and a heated family drama into a pulse-pounding thriller. Learn More
