John McKinney's The Chekhov Dreams will begin previews January 26 prior to an official opening February 3 at The Beckett Theatre at Theatre Row, 410 West 42 Street.
Directed by Leslie Kincaid Burby, the dark romantic comedy will feature Dana Watkins (My First Time, In Masks Outrageous and Austere), Elizabeth Inghram (After the Ball, Busker Alley), Charlotte Stoiber (Yolka at the Ivanovs), Christian Ryan (Dementia 13), and Rik Walter (30 Rock, Unforgettable).
In The Chekhov Dreams, Jeremy’s fiancée has it all—beauty, intelligence, beguiling charm. Unfortunately, she’s also dead, but that doesn’t stop her from visiting him every night in his dreams. This arrangement unravels with the interference of Jeremy’s hedonistic brother and his overly enthusiastic acting scene partner, with whom he’s stuck working on a scene by Chekhov—the one writer he loathes.
The production will also feature scenic design by Scott Aronow, costume design by Christina Giannini and Kimberley Windbiel, and lighting design by Diana Duecker.
Producers are Catriona Rubenis-Stevens and Jeanette Bonner. Jeremy Handelman serves as executive producer.
