Anton in Show Business



Feb 15th through Mar 9th

By Jane Martin

Directed by Caroline Beadle

Holly has shaped her entire life to make the jump from TV star to real film and now she is on the precipice of fulfilling her life’s dream.  She only faces one final test: performing in Chekhov’s Three Sisters in Austin, TX.  Anton in Show Business is a madcap, comedic exploration of what it takes to make it in show biz.  Martin spurs us to look at the dangers of following our wildest dreams. As we tell this story, you’ll feel the heartbreak, agony, camaraderie, and love of three actors putting on a play.

“Anton in Show Business” is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH, INC.

Winner of the 2001 American Theatre Critics Steinberg New Play Award
