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

We attended the Saturday performance of HMS Pinafore. We were both delighted. A talented lot of lawyers kept us well entertained and did justice to this Gilbert and Sullivan piece. The audience was engaged and encouraged several encores. The Hart Auditorium was a bit difficult to find. Better directions would have been helpful. We were lucky to have run into a few folks who knew their way about.
Come see the Gilbert & Sullivan Society do what they do best in their performance of H.M.S. Pinafore, one of Gilbert & Sullivan’s most popular and beloved operetta. Join them for this classic story of mistaken identity, love, intrigue, and duty set to excellent music, jaunty dances, and a set that will literally bring you aboard the H.M.S. Pinafore!
