Neil Simon is famous for witty comedy; playwright Anton Chekhov is famous for witty mood. Simon channels Chekhov to give us exactly what we hope for: moody comedy - with wit. This Broadway hit, nominated for four Tonys (and winning one) presents a range of characters from the admirable to the absurd.

Tickets for this performance are limited and should be purchased directly through the Box Office. Call 401.865.2218 or visit the Box Office website for showtimes and to purchase tickets
