Open: 02/28/17- Close: 04/01/17 SUNDOWN, YELLOW MOON
While navigating the unsettling waters of young adulthood, twin sisters return home to find their father in a moment of crisis. Under the cover of late-night, small-town shadows, sleep is elusive, connections are frayed, and the southern summer heat presses in. An ethereal, honest, funny-sad play about seeing old faces with new eyes, and the liminal space between loss and letting go. 

A nighttime play with songs by Rachel Bonds
Music & Lyrics by The Bengsons

Please note this production will be performed in Russian without subtitles. 

Back by popular demand, renowned Russian stage director Aleksey Burago and The Russian Arts Theater and Studio present a new adaptation of Anton Chekhov's Swan Song (Про Великое Ничто) a comedy to be performed in Russian by legendary actor Ernst Zorin (Honored Artist of the Russian Federation, Vakhtangov Theater), and Gala Orlovsky (Prominent Artist of Ukraine Citation) with live music by Di Zhu (Grand Prize Winner, New York International Piano Competition).

With humor and wit, Swan Song is a love letter dedicated to the theater. Enter the stage door and embark on a journey with four actors as they pay homage to Russian theater, its rosy illusions, backstage romances, and battling egos.

Seventy year old "Chick" Chicarella has one prized possession, a 1966 Jaguar that is in desperate need of repair. When his son suggests that they finish the car to sell it off, old family wounds and failures rise to the surface. Unable to complete the task themselves, they hire Carla, who is an expert in Jaguars, but woefully lacking in social skills. Together, the three learn some hard lessons about repairing cars and smoothing out life's jagged edges.

Starring Dan Grimaldi (best known for The Sopranos and last seen at NJ Rep in Lucky Me),  Christopher Daftsios (Swimming at the Ritz and Substance of Bliss at NJ Rep) and newcomer to NJ Rep, Estelle Bajou (a Drama Desk Award nominated actor).
