Good Doctor, The

Anton Chekhov's early short stories, which so eloquently capture the comic and serious sides of the 19th century Russian Bourgeoisie, were the source and inspiration for this hit by Neil Simon - one of the most prolific and beloved playwrights of all time. Simon’s tribute to Chekhov resonates with great feeling and warm humor. Richard Chamberlain as The Writer, who ties everything together, glides through the production in a variety of guises, opening with "The Sneeze" and progressing to "The Governess." He is joined by an all-star team of farceurs including Ed Asner, Bob Dishy, Lee Grant and Marsha Mason.
