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

A very well-done production, with a large ensemble cast and a fast pace with little interruption for scene changes. The plot is tragic and a little cynical. The staging is creative, with a minimal set, and the dramatic scenes interspersed with occasional songs that frame the story as sort of a Greek chorus. The performers have fine voices and blend together in tight harmonies, but sometimes the lyrics were a little hard to understand.
This production contains violence and mature themes.
