In this Broadway hit Neil Simon, the modern American master of comedy, compiles a delightful composite of the best short stories by Russian master playwright Anton Chekhov. The stories are charming, the portraits affectionate and the humor infectious. These quirky and amusing tales of turn-of-the-century Russia are at once whimsical, sweet and touching, and at times ironic and wistful. Simon pays subtle homage to Chekhov -- and all writers -- through the outrageously charming leading character, the Writer, who introduces each sketch with a gentle, wry humor and a twinkle in his eye. "The Good Doctor" is good medicine for the soul!
