    Platonov, or the Disinherited adapted and directed by Jay Scheib after the play by Chekhov January 8-24, 2014 at The Kitchen and simulcast Live as a feature film at BAM Rose Cinema in Brooklyn (Thursday nights), and AMC Empire 25 in Times Square (Wednesday nights). "The Disinherited," after the fragment Platonov by Anton Chekhov, is a new live cinema performance adaptation of Chekhov’s first full-length play chronicling an emotionally bankrupt society of anti-heroes who are, less heroically, also losing their loves, their homes, and perhaps, their humanity as well. In an unprecedented experiment, the performance is realized simultaneously as live play (Platonov) and feature film, shot and edited in real time at The Kitchen in downtown New York City and simulcast to BAM Rose Cinemas. This physically daring and emotionally charged performance brings director Jay Scheib’s acclaimed vision to the Cinema for the first time.
