Queer + Art Presents I AM SEAGULL New Queer Play Inspired By Chekhov's The Seagull With LGBT+ Cast
Queer & Art Presents "I AM SEAGULL" a new play with music is having it's first public workshop performance at acclaimed Celebration Theatre in Hollywood.
This all-queer inspired new adaptation takes place in the not-so-distant future after the United States and Russia have joined forces to create a new fascist-communist country; where the government has deemed queer people as "Unclassified" and sent to death camps. A response to the world's climate, performer/artist Frankie Kraft has adapted the classic play to be told through queer voices.
The cast includes "godfather of LGBTQ theatre" Michael Kearns, Toni Christopher (Ovation Nominee "Rabbit Hole"), Nathan Mohebbi, Kareem Ferguson, Ryland Shelton, Ashley Diane Currie, Richardson Jones, Arne Gjelten, Kenton Chen, Tristan Scott Behrends, Jessie Jacobson, and Frankie Kraft. Written and Directed by Frankie Kraft. The story is told with original music from Ryland Shelton, Jessie Jacobson and Ivo Dimchev. As well as choreography by Bruno Isakovic and Arne Gjelten.
"I AM SEAGULL" is presented by Queer & Art-- a new multimedia platform specializing in Queer art. They produce podcast, films and now theatre.
