The Seagull/Woodstock, NY
The New Group concludes its 2019-2020 Off-Broadway season with the world premiere of The Seagull/Woodstock, NY, written by Thomas Bradshaw and directed by Scott Elliott.
Performances are staged at The Romulus Linney Courtyard Theatre within the Pershing Square Signature Center.
Thomas Bradshaw returns to The New Group with a new adaptation based on Chekhov’s early masterpiece. A group of New York theater people retreat to a house upstate to get away from it all, but there’s no escaping the ambition and rivalries that torture them - or the absurd ways they inadvertently torture each other. Chekhov’s sharp satirical eye for hypocrisy, self-absorption and compromise among loving, well-meaning people is given fresh, fun emphasis in Bradshaw’s contemporary reworking.
