PLAY: “The Seagull” – 8pm; Syracuse Stage, 820 East Genesee St., Syracuse.
Performed by Syracuse University Drama Department. The comedy has three
female roles, six male roles, four acts, a view of a lake, much conversation about
literature . . . & five tons of love. So wrote Anton Chekhov to a friend about the
1895 play that established his reputation as a playwright and catapulted the famed
Moscow Art Theatre to prominence. It’s all quite simple: Medvedenko loves Masha
who loves Konstantin who loves Nina who loves Trigorin who’s involved with Arkadina.
