Nikolai and the Others, the world-premiere play from Richard Nelson that imagines a weekend shared by Russian artists George Balanchine, Igor Stravinsky, Nikolai Nabokov and more, begins Off-Broadway previews April 4 at Lincoln Center Theater's Mitzi E. Newhouse Theater.
According to LCT, "Serge Koussevitsky (Place), painter/set designer Sergey Sudeikin (Epstein) and composer Nikolai Nabokov (Kunken), gather to eat, drink and talk. In Nikolai and the Others playwright Richard Nelson reimagines, during the course of this weekend, the creation of Balanchine and Stravinsky’s historic collaboration, the ballet Orpheus, and explores the interesting and controversial ways American art was funded at the outset of the Cold War."
Set in the magical world of La Belle Epoque Paris, where fashion, glamour, and passion prevail, Lerner and Loewe's celebrated musical is a romantic comedy about one young woman's journey to find her true self... and her true love.
