Helen Hayes and Barrymore Award-winning writer-director Aaron Posner (The Chosen) mounts an encore performance of his latest play at the always-innovative Woolly Mammoth Theatre after its runaway success last summer. Helmed by the company's artistic director Howard Shalwitz, this admittedly loose and frequently irreverent adaptation of Anton Chekhov's The Seagull follows a famous actress whose son, an aspiring theater director, wants make a name for himself on his own. But when his muse, the lovely Nina, falls for his mother's lover, all kinds of romantic and artistic disappointment ensue. Posner turns the original play's famous subtext into scenes and songs, calling Stupid F***ing Bird "a rough-and-tumble meta-theatrical mash-up." Learn More

It starts slowly. But the one act, hour and a half, review deffinetly picks up steam, I knew surprisingly few of the musical numbers -- given that I know a fair amount of the American Musical songbook. But many of the "first-timers" (for me) were worth the listen. While there is no dialogue, there is more than music. Dancing, acrobatics and even fire eating create a Great Show. While the entire cast is accomplished, the sheer drive and the multipicity of talents of Andrew Sonntag was remarkable.
