This madcap comedy follows three actresses across the footlights, down the rabbit hole and into a strangely familiar Wonderland that looks a lot like American theatre the resemblance is uncanny!

As these women pursue their dream of performing Chekhov in Texas, they're whisked through a maelstrom of "good ideas" that offer unique solutions to the Three Sister's need to have life's deeper purpose revealed

In the tradition of great backstage comedies, Anton in Show Business conveys the joys, pains and absurdities of "putting on a play" at the turn of the century

"A smart, acerbic crowd pleaser.... Simultaneously a love letter and a poison pen letter to the American theatre" ~ Variety

"Funny, smart, wry and poignant" ~ Miami Herald

"Consciously an example of the problem it addresses, often with aching hilarity, that the world of theatre is growing ever more estranged from the straightforward business of telling stories" ~ N.Y. Times
