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 really liked it; almost a five. Excellent story telling. With the exception of Lord Capulet, most of the characters stayed within a very tight range. You knew that Juliet was one smart cookie and that Romeo was in love with being in love, in addition to being in love with Juliet. Lord Capulet -- he was a crazy man. You never knew what he was going to do. Really enjoyed hearing the commentary of the high school students who were attending the play; they were relating to the characters on the stage as peers.
