One summer at a lakeside Russian estate, friends and family gather for a weekend in the countryside. While everyone is caught up in passionately loving someone who loves somebody else, a tragicomedy unfolds about art, fame, human folly, and the eternal desire to live a purposeful life. Adapted by Tony-winning playwright Stephen Karam (“The Humans”) from Anton Chekhov’s classic play and directed by Tony-winner Michael Mayer (“Spring Awakening”), THE SEAGULL explores, with comedy and melancholy, the obsessive nature of love, the tangled relationships between parents and children, and the transcendent value and psychic toll of art.

"Bening and Stoll, in particular, find all the wit, vanity, vulnerability and casual cruelty there is to be found here."--Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune

“The Seagull,” as you hardly needed me to tell you, remains a masterpiece, a pungent and permanently modern anatomy of the conflicting pursuits of fame, art, love and happiness."-- A.O. Scott, New York Times
