This production has been showered with praise, but I deliberately avoided reviews or re-reading the play. I wanted to be surprised by as the production unfolded. There are light, deft touches of humor in this production and it was well worth the $35 ticket price. If you're in or near Seattle, it is playing until Feb.10. I am not sure if they are taking it on the road. The set is simple, the costumes are beautiful and appropriate to the time and setting.
Afterwards, we went to Sullivan's Steakhouse (across the street from the theatre), where we ate top grade hamburgers for $5 and drank $4 happy hour drinks. Best burger I've had in a long time. We saw several of actors stop by, and complimented them as we were leaving. They said they were shocked anyone came to the play on Superbowl Sunday, but the house was 90% full. Haha! Chekov was my act of rebellion against corporate commercialism that day.

Many do know that Super Bowl Sunday is a good day to be out and about if not football-inclined or if the game turns out a turkey - heavy traffic magically vanishes, parking in busy areas much easier, etc. "The Seagull Project" sounds like a worthy production, although the very lengthy rehearsal period offers perils as well as advantages.

I've noticed that fabric stores often have big sales on that day (and I've been glad to take advantage of them!)
