They triumphantly tackled Faulkner, Fitzgerald, and Shakespeare with their celebrated productions of The Sound and the Fury, Gatz, and Measure for Measure. Now in their newest project, Elevator Repair Service takes on The Seagull, Anton Chekhov’s classic drama of artists in life and love. Blurring the line between the play itself and an informal chat with the audience, ERS’s venturous approach to the text twists truth into lies and fact into fiction as actors become characters who become actors who become characters. All the while, the play remains a permanently modern exploration of the conflicting pursuits of art, love, and happiness.
