Dear Playwright, Dear Actress

When: April 28-May 1 2011

Ardis Publishing co-founder Carl Proffer supposedly once said, "Russian literature is better than sex." The folks at TheatreWorks have tried their best to make others believe it in the series of plays, lectures and workshops they've dubbed "Russian Spring." To cap it all off, at 8 tonight, UCCS' Osborne Studio Theater (3955 Regent Circle, theatreworkscs.org) will house Dear Writer, Dear Actress, a reading of romantic correspondence in letters between playwright Anton Chekhov (whose play, The Seagull, is currently running at TheatreWorks) and his actress girlfriend and — spoiler alert — eventual wife Olga. Tickets are $10 and seating is limited, so reservations are "essential." (Though if you can't get in tonight, there are four more performances this weekend.) — Eric Calder
