Wilfrid Posted February 27 Share Posted February 27 Another recommendation. At the Pershing Square Signature Center, a complex I've never noticed even though I must have been to the adjacent Theater Row a hundred times. Young Black playwright's adaptation of (well it should be obvious). Updated, set in (well it should be obvious) and with a diverse cast -- allowing a bunch of fresh themes about race in the theater to be layered on top of Chekhov's concerns. I have always wrestled with the idea that "The Seagull" was written as a comedy. The story is so tragic. But indeed, here we have a mix of genuinely hilarious comedy (especially the theater in-jokes) and the harrowing experiences of Konstantin (re-named Toby, I think) and Nina. Very good cast with Parker Posey starring. Oh boy, she's funny. Quote Link to post Share on other sites
