Annie-B Parson and Paul Lazar, the team behind the internationally acclaimed Big Dance Theater, bring their signature style fusing theater and movement to this World Premiere adaptation of Anton Chekhov’s 1898 short story, Man in a Case.  In a tale both witty and haunting, a shy, reclusive man’s courtship of a carefree young woman forces him to stare down his own rigid nature. Mikhail Baryshnikov stars, and is joined onstage with a cast that includes Jess Barbagallo, Tymberly Canale, Chris Giarmo, and Aaron Mattocks.
