WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Theater J presents, for the first time, one of Anton Chekhov's major plays in a new adaptation created by Artistic Director Ari Roth, based on a translation by Carol Rocamora. The Seagull on 16th Street explores the dynamic clash between spiritual yearning and artistic ambitions. Youth is envied, challenged and mortally wounded in this tale of lovelorn artists, civil servants and household workers, penned by the great Russian writer, Anton Chekhov. Theater J's adaptation draws inspiration from Louis Malle's 1994 film, Vanya on 42nd Street, a cinematic rendering of Andre Gregory's theatrical production of Uncle Vanya set in a Times Square theater. In Theater J's version of The Seagull, the corner of 16th and Q streets provides the contemporary portal through which the production journies back in time to the Russian countryside to reveal a clash between Arkadina, a famous actress, her aspiring literary son, Treplev, and their respective lovers, Trigorin and Nina, at the estate of Pyotr Nikolayevich Sorin, Arkadina's brother.
