What is Chekhov Studio Cafe?
As part of our classes, we created the Chekhov Studio Café, a fun and relaxed way for our actors to work on building the ensemble.  We invite friends and professionals to view our work from class and share food and drink. This is also a great way for prospective students to see the work of their colleagues. The Chekhov Studio Café is designed to work on building the ensemble and providing a performance opportunity to enhance the training done at Chekhov Studio.
