Why are you wearing a tailcoat?

Description

Ivan Lomov, a long-time neighbor of Stepan Chubukov, comes to propose to Chubukov's daughter Natalia. After receiving a cheerful permission to marry Natalia, the happy conversation quickly devolves into a series of pointless arguments about Oxen Meadows, the disputed piece of land between their respective properties. This absurd and hilarious comedy is made even more entertaining with the addition of fantastic musical numbers! "Why are your wearing a tailcoat?" is a musical adaptation of Anton Chekov's classic farce A Marriage Proposal.
