    Irish Company Pan Pan Returning to NYC with THE SEAGULL AND OTHER BIRDS, 3/23-4/2Irish Company Pan Pan Returning to NYC with THE SEAGULL AND OTHER BIRDS, 3/23-4/2
    by BWW News Desk - Feb 5, 2016

    Abrons Arts Center is pleased to present the U.S. premiere of The Seagull and Other Birds by celebrated Irish theater company Pan Pan. The production, running March 26-April 2, is a roller coaster reimagining of Anton Chekhov's much-loved comic masterpiece. The performance centers around a concise new version of The Seagull integrated with works by Dick Walsh, Derrick Devine and Dan Riordan specially commissioned by the company. The Seagull and Other Birds goes inside the creative minds of Chekhov's iconic characters and imagines what creative masterpieces they might harbor - Konstantin's play is just one among many. In this wormhole of a new work performed by a cast of six, Chekhov's characters find themselves in extraordinarily different contexts: classic plays, TV shows, YouTube and stuff they've just made up. The result is playful and uncompromising - expect lots of talk about art, some action, and tons of love. (more...)

    by BWW News Desk - Jan 27, 2016

    Theatre Novi Most presents the iconic Russian classic by Anton Chekhov about love, art and the power and meaning of symbols, The Seagull. Staged by Russian director and Novi Most co-artistic director, Vladimir Rovinsky, this production disengages the play from the cliche?s of samovars, corsets, and the 'mysterious Russian soul' and instead addresses our contemporary world of disconnection and the desperate longing for love that is our seething, vibrating underbelly. In this existential and darkly humorous mediation on the stakes of living life and making art, Theatre Novi Most reminds us that Chekhov is supremely one of us. (more...)

    BWW Review: Stellar Ensemble Soars in Wilbury Group's Fantastic STUPID F#%*ING BIRDBWW Review: Stellar Ensemble Soars in Wilbury Group's Fantastic STUPID F#%*ING BIRD
    by Robert Barossi - Jan 26, 2016

    There's a moment in the play Stupid F#%*ing Bird, currently playing at The Wilbury Group, where a character talks about how contemporary theaters adapt and reimagine Shakespeare. Certainly, it's always a tricky proposition, reconfiguring a classic work and attempting to bring it into the current era while maintaining all the aspects, themes and characteristics that made it great. Or, at least, finding a way to reshape it so it will hold up in front of today's audiences, keeping them engaged and entertained within of our modern-day context. As written by Aaron Posner, adapted from the classic Anton Chekhov play The Seagull, Bird is a play that more than holds its own as a thought provoking, entertaining and hilarious modern take on a theatrical classic.
