Accoridng to Hartford Stage, "Annie-B Parson and Paul Lazar, the team behind the internationally acclaimed Big Dance Theater, bring their signature style — fusing theatre, movement, music, and video — to this world-premiere adaptation of Anton Chekov'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."
Actor and dance star Baryshnikov appeared on Broadway in Metamorphosis (Tony Award nomination and a Drama Critics Award) and Off-Broadway in In Paris (Ely and Edyth Broad Stage, Berkeley Repertory Theatre, Lincoln Center Festival and 2011-12 International Tour), Beckett Shorts (New York Theatre Workshop) and Forbidden Christmas or The Doctor and the Patient (Lincoln Center Festival). He has appeared in the films "White Nights," "The Cabinet of Dr. Ramirez," "Company Business" and "The Turning Point" (Oscar nomination, Best Supporting Actor).
