All Roads Lead to the Kurski Station is a loose adaptation of the first postmodern novel in Russian, Moscow Circles by Vienya Efofeev. The story follows a poet-drunkard called Vienya, as he traverses Soviet Moscow in an attempt to catch a train to visit his beloved in the distant suburb of Petuskhi. Along the way, he is haunted by fantastic visions, and two mysterious women, seemingly determined to frustrate his plans. In the tradition of anti-theater more popular in New York City in the '70s and '80s, All Roads Lead to the Kurski Station rejects naturalistic forms of narrativization and storytelling. Instead, a sequence of maniacal fever dreams explore Soviet life through the lens of Vienya's troubled mind. Experience emotion fused with references to religion, art, history and more in this psychotic and surreal chorus at the East Village Playhouse in New York.

Greenwich Village has been the center of many of the city's countercultures and artistic movements, from the Bohemians of the World War I period to the Beats, the Abstract Expressionists, the New York School, Pop Art, the creators of off- (and off-off-) Broadway, and of course the gay liberation movement. Visit the sites of the drag shows and gay bars that have enjoyed a home in the Village for 150 years. The list of LGBT greats you'll learn about reads like a history of American culture: Herman Melville, Henry James, Edna St. Vincent Millay, Eleanor Roosevelt, James Baldwin, Allen Ginsberg and Andy Warhol.

King Richard believes himself to be God's chosen on earth. His word is infallible and absolute. But he is also a flawed human being, ill-suited to the demands of kingship.

Shakespeare's poetic masterpiece is a story of power and privilege, of family and loyalty, of poetry and politics. But beneath all the pageantry is an aching examination of what it means to be fully human. Artistic Director Davis McCallum and a huge cast of fan favorites will come together for HVSF's first-ever production of this sweeping historical drama at Hudson Valley Shakespeare Festival in Philipstown.
