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 attended opening night. This was a wonderful production. My hat is off to everyone involved. The story moved well and was easy to follow. The lead Walter Coppage was very charming and perfectly cast. He had great chemistry with his onstage wife (Ms. Starnes). The actor playing Roosevelt was very cunning and believable as the antagonist. The actors playing Joe and Sterling represented the common man and served as the comic relief and boy did they deliver. Both were very, very funny! Great job by all! I highly recommend this show!
Directed by Ron Himes
Starring Walter Coppage, with Erik Kilpatrick, Deidra LaWan Starnes, Frederick Strother and Kim Sullivan
