Award-winning writer-director Aaron Posner's irreverent, contemporary and very funny remix of Anton Chekhov's The Seagull flies into New York. Stupid F**king Bird follows a famous actress whose son, an aspiring theater director, wants to make a name for himself on his own. But when his muse, the lovely Nina, falls for his mother's lover, all kinds of romantic and artistic disappointments ensue. Stupid F**king Bird turns the famous subtext of Chekhov's original play into scenes and songs, and Charles Isherwood of The New York Times says, "Mr. Posner's bitingly funny, bruisingly sad 'sort of' adaptation of The Seagull comes closer than many productions of the original to capturing the full complexity of feeling in the play." Witness this heady and hilarious mix of ambition, booze and sex at the Pearl Theatre.
This show’s running time is two hours and 15 minutes, with one intermission.
