Theater Thursday: Uncle Vanya at Strawdog Theatre

Thursday, March 18

Uncle Vanya by Anton Chekhov

Strawdog Theatre, 3829 N. Broadway, Chicago

Join Strawdog Theatre in their Hugen Hall Gallery for a preshow discussion and vodka tasting!  From 7:00 to 7:30 enjoy a discussion about the history and importance of Vodka to the Russian Culture and Russian Literature hosted by Seth Rickard (faculty member of Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts in Chicago, Strawdog Board Member, and all-around charming fellow).

straw-uncle vanyaThen stay for Strawdog’s acclaimed production of Uncle Vanya (Jeff, Reader, and NewCity Recommended, Four Stars in TimeOut, Three Stars in the Tribune). Mix Curt Columbus‘ un-stuffy translations of Chekhov with the delicate direction of Kimberly Senior and the irreverent naturalism of Strawdog’s acting ensemble, and you hear people say things like "intensely appealing," "funny" and "smoldering sexual energy" (Chicago Tribune), "unexpectedly emotional" (Time Out), "fabulous" (EDGE Chicago), "perfect" (Chicago Reader), "a pure joy to experience" (Gay Chicago), etc. Frankly, it’s all a bit embarrassing, so when we say you CANNOT MISS Senior’s production of Checkov’s Uncle Vanya, please understand that we’re just trying to help you out. (see our review here★★★)

Event begins at 7 p.m. Show begins at 8 p.m.

TICKETS ONLY $25
