“El daño que hace el tabaco” de Anton Chekhov

January 30 @ 7:00 pm EST

$5 – $10   BUY TICKETS

La historia que se narra comienza cuando el Profesor Iván Ivanovich Niujin, esposo de la propietaria de una escuela de música y de un pensionado de señoritas, ingresa a un salón con el inocente fin de dar una conferencia sobre el daño que hace el tabaco. En una desordenada conferencia, brinda un discurso impredecible, donde, entre lo patético y lo ridículo, la inconformidad lo lleva a revelar terribles males del alma.

The story begins with Professor Ivan Ivanovich Nyukhin, the husband of the owner of a music boarding school for young ladies. The Professor enters a room with the innocent intention of giving a lecture on the harmful effects of tobacco. As the disorderly lecture begins to unravel, he delivers an unpredictable speech wavering between pathetic, ridiculous, and nonconforming, leading him to reveal terrible evils of the soul.

“El daño que hace el tabaco” (The Dangers of Tobacco Smoking) by Anton Chekhov was chosen to be the first theatrical play presented during the Drive-Through Theatre Experience because it follows the theme of the series: short and significant, yet light-hearted performances that comfort and bring a smile to our audience. “El daño que hace el tabaco” is a comedic one-act monologue that allows our patrons a brief escape from these current challenging times. Anton Chekhov was a fantastic playwright and considered to be among one of the greatest fiction writers in history. We are honored to present his work in this modern outdoor environment.


This performance is presented in Spanish. Part of the Drive-Through Theatre Experience series.
