One summer, at a lakeside Russian estate, friends and family gather for a weekend in the countryside. While everyone is caught up in passionately loving someone who loves somebody else, a tragicomedy unfolds about art, fame, human folly and the eternal desire to live a purposeful life. Adapted by Tony Award®- winning playwright Stephen Karam from Anton Chekhov's classic play and directed by Tony Award® winner Michael Mayer, with riveting performances, 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.
