About this event

After a previous sold-out run, The Russian Arts Theater and Studio is thrilled to present an encore presentation of Nikolai Gogol's The Overcoat.

Hailed by Vladimir Nabokov as "The greatest Russian short story ever written", Nikolai Gogol's The Overcoat recounts the life of Akaky Akakievich Bashmachkin, an insignificant copying clerk in St. Petersburg who lives frugally on 400 rubles a year. His world is forever changed when his tailor tells him his old overcoat can no longer be repaired and it is time to buy a new one. Acclaimed Russian director Aleksey Burago adapts and directs this masterpiece for the stage, featuring actors Roman Freud, Tom Schubert, Christopher Zach and Di Zhu.

COVID Guidelines For Attendees and Mask Policy
