In The Seagull/Woodstock, NY a group of New York theatre people retreat to a house in the Hudson Valley hoping to get away from it all—except they can’t seem to escape the ambitions, rivalries, and fragile egos that follow them everywhere.
This premiere reunites playwright Bradshaw and director Elliott, who previously collaborated at The New Group on Bradshaw’s Intimacy and Burning.
The production will also have scenic design by Derek McLane, costume design by Qween Jean, lighting design by Cha See, sound design by Rob Milburn and Michael Bodeen, fight and intimacy direction by David Anzuelo, and casting by Judy Henderson. The production stage manager is Valerie A. Peterson, and the assistant stage manager is Stephen Michael Varnado.
