Conni’s Avant Garde Restaurant (a Time Out New York favorite and Village Voice Choice) invokes the world of a (fictional) restaurant run by a (fictional) ensemble devoted to the teachings of the legendary (and again, fictional) Miss Conni Convergence. In Irina’s Name Day Party the actresses of Miss Conni’s company are presented with a copy of Anton Chekhov’s Three Sisters and the directive to “find the play!” The party in the opening scene comes to life as audience members become invited guests and are treated to a meal of burgoo, beer, and birthday cake. Meanwhile, the actresses grapple with Chekhov’s great female roles. With the soul-wrenching assistance of the Violent Femmes, Frank Sinatra, and Bonnie Tyler, among others, they explode the sibling-like entanglements of their own ensemble.

Tickets are $25 and include dinner provided by the Rudyard Kipling and cake by Amanda Danke
