Only Human: Anton Chekhov

GUEST HOST: JANE CURTIN

Description

Guest host Jane Curtin presents works by Anton Chekhov, which were part of an annual celebration sponsored by Columbia University and hosted by Chekhov scholar Laura Strausfeld. We’ll hear “A Drama” performed by Cynthia Nixon—an ambitious writer overwhelms her idol. “Rapture” performed by Robin Miles, Sam Underwood, Rainn Wilson, and Di Zhu—a young man enjoys his 15 minutes of fame; “Which is Better?” performed by Rainn Wilson—Chekhov debates the merits of schools vs. pubs; and “Verotchka” performed by Rainn Wilson—a studious young man confronts romance.
