See it if you really like the Seagul, or like stories about teenage angst
Don't see it if you don't understand, or don't want to remember the trauma that teens feel.
See it if You've seen or read The Seagull or read the Wikipedia entry, and are curious what a modern version with social media would be like
Don't see it if You're sick of mediated communication (altho that's the point), or you have low tolerance for decent concepts that aren't quite there yet
"The writers took a risk with a piece that plays more like a spoof than an adaptation. Chekhov die-hards might find its deviation difficult to digest; others may find it amusing. But the makers behind this production are well aware that it is, indeed, not for everyone. Nonetheless, with a retelling or modernization of an old piece, there is an opportunity to capitalize on the exigency of the story in its new context: why this play now? I wished to have a better understanding of the stakes."
"Top-notch quintessential fringe…'The Seagull' is the template, and they run with it like running with scissors. The solid script, updated with a bad mouth and attitude, allows the huge reflex to comedy to float above the tragedy…There's precision direction, four all-around excellent actors, fluid minimal set, and a smart structure… If you know Chekhov's 'Seagull' you'll appreciate the echoes. If you don't, you'll applaud the sheer entertaining theatricality."
