Winner of the 2001 American Theatre Critics Steinberg New Play Award, this madcap comedy follows three actresses across the footlights, down the rabbit hole and into a strangely familiar Wonderland that looks a lot like American theatre! As these women pursue their dream of performing Chekhov in Texas, they’re whisked through a maelstrom of “good ideas” that offer unique solutions to The Three Sisters’ need to have life’s deeper purpose revealed. In the tradition of great backstage comedies, Anton in Show Business is a play within a play within a play that conveys the joys, pains and absurdities of “putting on a play” with biting wit, irony and humor. “A smart, acerbic crowd pleaser…” —Variety “Funny, smart, wry and poignant.” —Miami Herald “Consciously an example of the problem it addresses, often with aching hilarity…” —The New York Times
