Much obliged for the heads-up, California. I hope anyone who sees the play tells us about it here!

A review of the world premiere.

Adapted and directed by Annie-B Parson and Paul Lazar in conjunction with their Big Dance Theater and choreographed by Ms. Parson, “Man in a Case” makes thrilling use of sound, light and video technology throughout its briskly paced running time. Jennifer Tipton’s lighting infuses the stories with a magical element and Tei Blow’s astonishing sound design becomes a character in itself; very specific and haunting. Best of all may be Jeff Larson’s video design which runs mini-movies on a screen, a door or a tablecloth making them an organic part of the action and giving remarkable visual enhancement to Chekhov’s melancholy stories.
