New play for Baryshnikov

Production to bow at Hartford Stage

Mikhail Baryshnikov will star in the world premiere of a dance-theater work based on an Anton Chekhov short story, “The Man in a Case,” at Hartford Stage Feb. 21-March 24.

The five-hander is a co-production of Baryshnikov Prods. Inc. and ArKtype/Thomas O. Kriegsmann. Piece will be co-adapted and directed by Annie-B Parson and Paul Lazar of the New York-based, Obie Award-winning Big Dance Theater. Show is choreographed by Parson and will play a seven-performance week.

There will be two workshops at the Baryshnikov Arts Center in New York, where the piece will be rehearsed.

“Man in a Case” marks the third world premiere for the Connecticut regional theater’s 2012-13 season. Also slated is the new musical comedy, “A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder” and Daniel Beaty’s “Breath and Imagjnation: The Roland Hayes Story”

Hartford Stage also commissioned, developed and premiered this year’s Pulitzer Prize winning play, “Water By the Spoonful” by Quiara Alegria Hudes.

Baryshnikov will also performing in a new play, “In Paris,” which premiered last year in Europe and is now set for New York’s Lincoln Center Festival this summer. That play is based on a short story by Russian writer Ivan Bunin.
