There are columns dispersed around the venue so there are a few obstructed seats. OK for a performer who moves around but not for a static play

This tragicomedy should be renamed "The Bickersons." Ugh. The actors did their best but the material is long, boring, and senseless. Save your time and money.

Amanda Quaid was marvelous as Mary. The rest of the cast just didn't "click" for me. I didn't believe that the other actors were the complex, intriguing characters Chekov created.

Description

Thomas Kilroy’s version of The Seagull is a dazzling reappraisal of Chekhov’s first great comedy, a story of a distinguished actress and her passionate, lonely son. In the decline of Anglo-Irish estates and the emergence of the Land League, Kilroy unearths fascinating parallels to the shifts in Russian society that inform Chekhov’s original. This acclaimed adaptation illuminates the play’s universal themes while revealing new social and political angles.
