Two great men. One great love affair. Mr. Chekhov and Mr. Porter find one another at long last—just in time to warm your winter! Written, directed, and musically curated by another dynamic duo, Janet Bentley and Andy Evan Cohen, "Mr. Chekhov and Mr. Porter” marries the unbridled joy of Cole Porter's music to the beautiful dreams of Anton Chekhov's characters. Love is in the air, and we are so looking forward to warming the cockles of your heart! Join us for a remarkable, zany, music-filled evening of whimsy, gorgeous language, and profound silliness.
“I hope that in the next world I shall be able to look back upon this life and say: ‘Those were beautiful dreams..’”
