Very loosely based on 19th century Russian playwright Anton Chekhov’s “The Bear”, “A Night in the Ukraine” is re-imagined on stage as the wildest musical farce the three Marx Brothers never filmed for MGM studios. A triple threat cast of ten will transport you back to 1898 Russia via 1936 Hollywood and one of the craziest comedy musicals you’ll ever experience. Engle Lane is proud to present the Illinois Valley debut of this 1980 Tony Award winner!
