Sting, Ian McKellen and More Celebrate Culture Project's The Seagull, Starring Trudie Styler
Directed by Max Stafford Clark, the cast is headed by Trudie Styler.
Kilroy’s version of The Seagull, press notes state, is a "reappraisal of Chekhov’s first great comedy, a story of a distinguished actress and her passionate lonely son.… Set in late 19th century Ireland during the time of the National Land League, a political movement advocating for poor tenant farmers, Thomas Kilroy unearths fascinating parallels to the shifts in Russian society that inform Chekhov’s original. This acclaimed adaptation illuminates the play’s universal themes while revealing new social and political angles."
The production has scenic design by Peter Hartwell with costume design by Ilona Somogyi and lighting by William Hansen.
Show times are Tuesday at 7 PM, Wednesday-Saturday at 8 PM with matinees Saturday and Sunday at 3 PM at the Lynn Redgrave Theater at the Culture Project, 45 Bleecker Street (at Lafayette Street).
