Elevator Repair Service: Chekhov's Seagull (Off-Broadway, NYU Skirball Center for the Performing Arts, 2022) | Playbill

Elevator Repair Service: Chekhov's Seagull



Elevator Repair Service's new work presents the company’s take on Anton Chekhov’s The Seagull. The piece reimagines Chekhov’s classic drama by blurring the line between a play and a frank chat with the audience. Actors become characters becoming actors becoming characters and truth is twisted into lies and, ultimately, into a truthful rendering of the text. The performance features ERS’s signature choreography and a richly layered sound design.

Directed by John Collins
Sound Design by Gavin Price, with John Gasper
Choreography & Movement by Katherine Profeta

Ensemble: Laurena Allan, Kate Benson, Julian Fleisher, John Gasper, Lindsay Hockaday, Maggie Hoffman, Robert M. Johanson, Vin Knight, Gavin Price, Pete Simpson, Susie Sokol
