Le Moyne College Announces Spring 2007 Production at W. Carroll Coyne Center for the Performing Arts

<p>SYRACUSE, NY (For Immediate Release) … On March 16, 17, 22, 23 and 24 the Boot and Buskin Theatre Club in conjunction with the department of theatre arts at Le Moyne College will present “The Seagull,” a drama by Anton Chekhov. This version is translated by the award-winning playwright Tom Stoppard. All performances will be presented at 8 p.m. in the W. Carroll Coyne Center for the Performing Arts. <br /> <br /> A bittersweet story of betrayal and unrequited love, “The Seagull” is the stuff of soap opera. This classic of Western drama is set on a beautiful country estate in pre-Revolutionary Russia, where love is in the air -- along with jealousy and heartbreak.<br /> <br /> Chekhov's platform is a love quadrangle. Konstantin loves Nina, a young would-be actress, who is enchanted with Trigorin, a writer of the old school and the lover of Arkadina, an actress who is also Konstantin's mother. As his characters struggle to find happiness, Chekhov takes a profound look at what we strive for, what we settle for, and what we sacrifice for those we love. <br /> <br /> Stoppard’s version of “The Seagull” was first performed in Central Park in New York City in July 2001 with Meryl Streep, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Christopher Walken, Natalie Portman, and John Goodman playing the lead roles. Stoppard has written and adapted numerous well-known plays and films, including the Academy Award-winning “Shakespeare in Love,” for which he earned an Oscar for best original screenplay.<br /> <br /> The production will be directed by Anjalee Nadkarni. Scenery is by visiting scenic designer Sarah Martin, lights are designed by John Czajkowski ’07, and costumes are designed by Shirley Blakeley. <br /> <br /> Ticket prices are $10 for the general public, $8 for senior citizens and $4 for students and the Le Moyne community.
