Lyrics: Anton Chekhov

Music: Shane Chapman & Julia Sirna-Frest

Director: Patrick Vassel

Design: Ásta Bennie Hostetter & Kate McGee

Chekhov’s signature longing and angst is turned up to 11 as his characters’ inner thoughts are transformed into a cathartic explosion of Chekhovian proportions filled with rock n’ roll and, of course, vodka! It’s the greatest Chekhovian song cycle of 2018!

Performed by: Shane Chapman, Julia Sirna-Frest, Lester St.Louis, Starr Busby and more!

Chapman/Sirna-Frest are a composing duo who write original song cycles using the text of classic plays as lyrics. From Chekhov to O'Neill they create atmospheric power ballads and non linear glam rock shows that capture the emotion of the text with rock and roll and sometimes vodka.
