Steppenwolf Theatre Opens SEAGULL in the New Ensemble Theater Through June 12

Steppenwolf Theatre Company, the nation's premier ensemble theater company, opens its stunning new in-the-round Ensemble Theater in Honor of Helen Zell—the centerpiece of its recently unveiled Lefkofsky Arts and Education Center—with ensemble member Yasen Peyankov's extraordinarily funny and lyrical adaptation of Anton Chekhov's Seagull, now through June 12, 2022.

BWW Review: SEAGULL at Steppenwolf Theatre Company

Yasen Peyankov’s adaptation of Anton Chekhov’s SEAGULL proves a wry vehicle to showcase the talents of many of his fellow Steppenwolf ensemble members who haven’t graced the stage since before the COVID-19 pandemic. Peyankov’s adaptation is direct, self-aware, and rife with dry (extremely dry) humor. The ennui that pierces SEAGULL is deeply and obviously felt throughout this adaptation of the text. References to Chekhov’s native Russia abound in Peyankov’s script, but the language feels modern and direct.
