Nikolai and the Others - Off-Broadway

Lincoln Center Theater presents Richard Nelson's new drama,.


Set in 1948 on a spring weekend in Westport, CT, Nikolai and the Others tells the story of a close-knit group of Russian emigres who gather to eat, drink and talk. Over the course of the weekend, Nelson reimagines the creation of Balanchine and Stravinsky’s historic collaboration, the ballet Orpheus, and explores the interesting and controversial ways American art was funded at the outset of the Cold War.
