A naive single professor comes from Russia with(out) love. His fluency in numbers and statistics is only matched by his cluelessness in the not-so-international language of women and romance. Will he ever understand and be able to conquer the heart of the mysterious, exotic creature known as the American Woman? Will he find love or remain romantically monolingual forever? Follow Sufian Zhemukhov’s harrowing and hilarious journey as he navigates the foreign world of dating and romance in the New World! The show includes stories that were featured on PBS and won The Moth and The National Storytelling Festival.
The show Flirting Like an American was performed at Capital Fringe festival in Washington, DC and KeyBank Fringe Festival in Rochester, NY.
