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 enjoyed it more after it was over because I really had to think about it. At first I was thrown off by what I perceived to be overacting. Later, I learned that this type of acting is common in Asian theater. What intrigued me the most is the honesty of the main character and the women that all played on person on stage. It was my first Indian play and I am glad that I went.

Born into prostitution and a caste system that held down even the most ambitious, Nati Binodini (1863–1941) defied all odds to become a leading figure on the Bengali stage. Based on the title character’s autobiography, this work from Theatre & Television Associates of New Delhi, created and directed by Amal Allana, shows how strength of character can carry one woman far beyond the circumstances of her birth.
