It's The Seagull ... on steroids. In this contemporary, irreverent, "sort of" adaptation of the Anton Chekhov classic, the Russian writer's characters still philosophize on love, art and the pursuit of happiness, but this time it's with mad humor and music. This award-winning play by Aaron Posner (My Name is Asher Lev) turns the original work's famous subtext into scenes and songs, described by the playwright himself as "a rough-and-tumble meta-theatrical mash-up." There's an aging Hollywood star whose son, an aspiring theater director, is desperate to make a name for himself on his own -- and his muse, the lovely Nina, who falls for his mother's lover. Presented by ACT, Stupid F#@*ing Bird mixes ambition, booze and sex into a heady (and hilarious) brew at the Allen Theatre in Seattle.
