Clip: 12/19/2013 | 9m

Born in the then-Soviet Union, Mikhail Baryshnikov grew up reading the works of the Russian writer Anton Chekhov in school, but a few short stories particularly resonated with Baryshnikov beyond homework. Currently, the famed dancer is starring in an experimental play adapted from two of those stories. He spoke to Jeffrey Brown about "Man in a Case" in Washington D.C.
