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.

All the actors were strong, and the style of the play let the viewer's mind add its own details based on personal opinions and experience. An ambitious work, I may go back and see a later production of it as well.
