Russian Studies Program
Modern theater owes a great debt to Russian playwrights and directors like Chekhov, Meyerhold, Stanislavsky. The startpoint of an exploration of Russian theaters is the Russian theaters website. Or you may prefer to jump right in and begin your exploration of that debt at the place where it began, Stanislavsky's Moscow Art Theater (MKhAT), where you will find a history of this exciting theatrical experience. Konstantin Stanislavsky's 'Method' acting techniques, which he developed for MKhAT, form the foundation of all contemporary acting schools.
