Robert Brustein, previous artistic director of the American Repertory Theatre in Cambridge, MA, has taken three of Chekhov's most popular comedies; The Marriage Proposal, The Bear, and The Wedding Party and linked them with excerpts from the playwright's poignant, romantic love letters and scenes from his life. You'll laugh in recognition at the age-old rituals of love, courtship, and marriage in this effervescent flight of farces.

If you have any questions regarding any of the productions this season, please call 503-370-6222.
