Adapted by Tony-winning playwright Stephen Karam ("The Humans") from Anton Chekhov's classic play and directed by Tony-winner Michael Mayer ("Spring Awakening"), THE SEAGULL explores, with comedy and melancholy, the obsessive nature of love, the tangled relationships between parents and children, and the transcendent value and psychic toll of art.
In the early 20th century at a picturesque lakeside estate, a love triangle unfolds between the diva Irina, her lover Boris, and the innocent Nina.
