Art of Warr Productions presents a new staging of Aaron Posner's irreverent and contemporary remix of Chekhov’s "The Seagull." More…
From the show:
An aspiring young director rampages against the art created by his mother’s generation. A nubile young actress wrestles with an aging Hollywood star for the affections of a renowned novelist. And everyone discovers just how disappointing love, art, and growing up can be. In this irreverent, contemporary, and very funny remix of Chekhov’s The Seagull, Aaron Posner stages a timeless battle between young and old, past and present, in search of the true meaning of it all. Original songs composed by James Sugg draw the famously subtextual inner thoughts of Chekhov’s characters to the surface. STUPID FUCKING BIRD will tickle, tantalize, and incite you to consider how art, love, and revolution fuel your own pursuit of happiness.
See it if you like Chekhov, good acting and engaging characters and discussions of life philosophy and the big questions.

Don't see it if You saw the much better realized 'Life Sucks' which knew what tone to play in.
See it if you want to see strong performances.
Don't see it if you are not interested in an adaptation of The Seagull by Chekov. Runs the line of knowing its source material and being "theatre centric."
