In this contemporary, irreverent adaptation of Anton Chekhov's The Seagull, the famous Russian writer's characters still philosophize on love, art and the pursuit of happiness, but this time with music and mad humor. There's a famous actress whose son, an aspiring theater director, is desperate to make a name for himself on his own, and his muse, the lovely Nina, who falls for his mother's lover, a renowned novelist. Helen Hayes and Barrymore Award-winning playwright Aaron Posner (The Chosen) turns the original play's famous subtext into scenes and songs, calling Stupid F**king Bird "a rough-and-tumble meta-theatrical mash-up."

Great new work with both comedy and drama. The acting was strong. I liked that it made me think.

*About American Blues Theater
*In 1985, American Blues Theater’s Founding Ensemble members produced our inaugural world premiere about the working person’s struggle. Twenty-seven years later, we still find this subject timeless and poignant. You witness examples of the competition and anxiety in offices, homes, and farms throughout the United States. This fight plays out in stadiums and entertainment venues as well. You’ll root for your local artists season after season, applaud their merit and skill, and talk about critics’ fate-making judgments.
