Four of Anton Chekhov's one-act comedies come to the stage, brought to life by four different theater companies. In The Bear, a landlord challenges an indebted widow to a duel and falls in love with her bravery. The Proposal centers on two neighbors desperate to get married -- if only they could stop arguing. Stage 773, Red Theater, New Millennium Theatre Company and Organic Theater Company will also perform The Wedding and The Anniversary, each in a different style. Learn More
Based on ancient myths, this tragedy examines how love and unabated passion can destroy lives. Phèdra is cursed by the gods to love her own stepson, Hippolytus. He in turn hides a secret love affair of his own. Emotional, turbulent and sexy, Phèdra is a mythical soap opera for a contemporary audience.
