Battle of the Gulls

Too bad Anton's copyright has expired. Looks like NYC will see three Seagulls this season.

First, RSC (on Lear's off-nights). Then CSC (with Diane Wiest). And now we hear word that spring will bring the much praised Royal Court staging from last year, starring Kristin Scott Thomas.

Personally I must say this is my least favorite Chekhov to sit through. I think because I dread that last scene if the acting isn't good.

Not to mention Emily Mann's new adaptation of The Seagull, at McCarter Theatre (in NJ).
