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

I went into this performance with high expectations and this show did not disappoint. It was fast-paced, humorous, and poignant. Stacy Keach did a wonderful job as Richard Nixon and Alan Cox more than kept up with him. The supporting cast was very good. I was concerned that a 2-hour show with no intermission about Richard Nixon would have me squirming in my seat by the curtain call. Not at all. The time flew and I was very entertained. I definitely recommend this show.

We had seats in the third row left. We heard all the lines very clearly. The show was very well done. The exchanges between Frost and Nixon were believable and riveting. Good acting. Two hours with no intermission, but moved quickly.
Quotes & Highlights
“A victory! Nail biting, fast, and fluid, Frost/Nixon has the momentum of a thriller and the zing of a comedy.” —The New York Times
“A prize fight you watch with the kind of fascinated delight rare in the theater” —The New York Post
“An undisputed winner.” —USA Today
Frost/Nixon, written by Peter Morgan—the writer of the award-winning films The Queen and The Last King of Scotland—tackles the question: How did David Frost, a famous British talk-show host with a playboy reputation, elicit the apology that the rest of the world was waiting to hear from former President Richard Nixon? With a cast of 10 led by Golden Globe winner Stacy Keach, this fast-paced production was nominated for three 2007 Tony Awards including Best New Play. Directed by Olivier Award winner Michael Grandage, Frost/Nixon chillingly recounts one of the most monumental television interviews of all time.
