The New Group has announced casting for its world-premiere production of Thomas Bradshaw's The Seagull/Woodstock, NY, adapted from Anton Chekhov's The Seagull. Directed by Scott Elliott, the production will have a limited engagement February 7-March 26, 2023 with a February 28 opening at the Pershing Square Signature Center.

The Seagull/Woodstock, NY is described as follows: "A group of New York theater people retreat to a house in the Hudson Valley hoping to get away from it all. Except they can't seem to escape the ambitions, rivalries and fragile egos that follow them everywhere. Chekhov's sharp satirical eye for the hypocrisy, self-absorption and emotional volatility of ambitious artists is given fresh, fun emphasis in The Seagull/Woodstock, NY as Thomas Bradshaw returns to The New Group with his contemporary reworking of this tragicomic classic."

The cast will feature David Cale (Lillian), Patrick Foley (Circle Jerk), Hari Nef (Transparent), Daniel Oreskes (Oslo), Parker Posey (Waiting for Guffman), Bill Sage (Precious), Aleyse Shannon (Beauty), Amy Stiller (The King of Queens), and Nat Wolff (The Fault in Our Stars). Additional casting will be announced at a later date.

The design team includes scenic design by Derek McLane, costume design by Qween Jean, lighting design by Cha See, and sound design by Rob Milburn and Michael Bodeen.
