The Antaeus 2012 season takes flight with The Seagull
A comic masterpiece about fame, art and unrequited love. Under interim artistic direction of Tony Amendola, Rob Nagle and John Sloan, this revered play about art and theater underscores Antaeus’ mission to revive classical works with double-casts.
“The Seagull is a comedy of human foibles and frailty,” explains Traister. “The behavior in the play is so human and real that it causes us to laugh at ourselves. Each character wants something that is unattainable for him.”
He laughs, “I see Chekhov as the first absurdist playwright. He took city people, put them in the country with nothing to do, and they end up eating each other.
Performances run through February 23-April 15; The Antaeus Company at The Deaf West Theatre, 5112 Lankershim Blvd., North Hollywood, CA; $15-$34; 818-506-1983;
