OU Moment

The Department of Music, Theatre and Dance takes its productions seriously. So when it was time to produce a play about the life of playwright Anton Chekhov, the department sent a group halfway around the world to research their material. Director Thomas Suda, Professor Pavlo Bosyy, costume shop supervisor Donna Buckley and students Christa Koerner and Josh Rotarius spent 10 days in the Ukraine learning how to accurately present Chekhov in Yalta. The play, set in 1900, depicts Chekhov’s stay in his villa battling tuberculosis and the visit he receives from a troupe of actors. Travel for faculty and staff was funded by the R.F. and Robert C. Howes Slavic Fund. Student travel was funded by the Brad M. Glass Endowed Fund and a provost’s research grant. Chekhov in Yalta appeared on the OU stage in February. Cast members are (left to right): Greg Anderson (standing, front) Brett Radke, Adrienne Podjun, Chelsea Manasseri, Ryan Falcheck, Sam Zepik, Andrew Sandoval (standing, center), Denver Surgener, Reggie Rose II, Allyson Ortwein, Lauren Rich (sitting, front).
