In "The Good Doctor," Simon weaves a variety of Anton Chekhov short stories into a laugh-out-loud evening. The vignettes explore the humor, pathos, and utter humanity of characters caught in ordinary - and extraordinary - circumstances. "The Good Doctor" presents comical scenes rife with non-sequiturs, combining the social realism of Chekhov, the wit of Simon, and the surprising resources of one room.
Simon is considered the world’s most successful modern playwright, with more Academy and Tony Award nominations than any other writer. He is no stranger to comedy. From musicals like "Sweet Charity" to the iconic plays "Brighton Beach Memoirs" and "Biloxi Blues," Simon is known for his unique talent of exposing something real in the human spirit.
Playing multiple roles each, cast members include Paul Bianchi, Stacey Erskine, Jack Kausch, Megan Shiplett, and Tom Underwood.
