Blackbox Theatre

The Department of Theatre & Dance presents Neil Simon’s The Good Doctor, a classic comedy based on and inspired by the stories of Anton Chekhov and directed by Joel Grothe, associate professor of theatre. This production is, by turns, charming, hilarious, sad and touching. It centers around a writer, who speaks to the audience and presents them with a plethora of scenes: some are from his childhood, others are his family and friends, and still others are his own life experiences. The audience meets a variety of characters, all of whom are immediately relatable and strikingly human.

Tickets for The Good Doctor are available for purchase now for $15. COVID-19 protocols, seating and social distancing will be followed.
