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...)

STAGE TUBE: On This Day for 1/21/16- WAITING FOR GODOTSTAGE TUBE: On This Day for 1/21/16- WAITING FOR GODOT
by Stage Tube - Jan 21, 2016

Today in 1957 Waiting for Godot opened at the Ethel Barrymore Theatre, where it ran for 6 performances. An absurdist play by Samuel Beckett, it revolves around two characters, Vladimir and Estragon, who wait endlessly and in vain for someone named Godot to arrive. Godot's absence, as well as numerous other aspects of the play, have led to many different interpretations since the play's premiere. Since its US premiere in 1956, several notable revivals have been produced, including the 1988 production featuring Robin Williams and Steve Martin, and the 2009 revival starring Nathan Lane and Bill Irwin.

BWW Review: PROTOTYPE vs. CITY OPERA - The King is Not Dead. Long Live a Different King.BWW Review: PROTOTYPE vs. CITY OPERA - The King is Not Dead. Long Live a Different King.
by Richard Sasanow - Jan 19, 2016

It seems ironic--to me at least--that New York's venerable City Opera would be returning to life at Jazz at Lincoln Center's Rose Theater, just as the “Prototype: Opera/Theatre/Now” festival was finishing up its run at alternative venues in Manhattan and Brooklyn. Prototype “unleashed a powerful wave of opera-theatre and music-theatre from a new generation of classical and post-classical composers and librettists”--their words, not mine, but I won't dispute it--while City is doing a warhorse.
