Chekhov’s Bird Flies With a Sense of Humor
By Andy Webster

Chekhov’s “Seagull” is given a splash of cool absurdism in the National Asian American Theater Company’s new version, and it’s bracing. What can sometimes be presented as a glum panorama of bourgeois delusion and tragedy (Chekhov insisted, as this troupe does, that the play is a comedy) is here a lively production punctuated by touches of vaudeville and the grotesque.
