Neil Simon takes Chekhov's short stories to create "The Good Doctor." This comedy is, by turns, charming, hilarious, sad, and touching. It centers around a writer, who speaks to the audience and shares his different short stories with them. In one, a feisty old woman storms a bank and upbraids the manager for his gout and lack of money. In another, a crafty seducer goes to work on a wedded woman, only to realize that the woman has been in command from the first overture. And let us not forget the classic tale of a man who offers to drown himself for three rubles. The audience meets a variety of characters, all of whom are immediately relatable and strikingly human. The stories are droll, the portraits affectionate, the humor infectious, and the fun unending.
