THE SEAGULL STAR KRISTIN SCOTT THOMAS INTERVIEWED ON THE JOAN HAMBURG SHOW

 

THE SEAGULL STAR

KRISTIN SCOTT THOMAS

INTERVIEWED TOMORROW, WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 3

 ON WOR RADIO’S THE JOAN HAMBURG SHOW

 

 

Kristin Scott Thomas, the Olivier Award-winning star of the Royal Court Theatre’s critically acclaimed production of Anton Chekhov’s THE SEAGULL, will be interviewed tomorrow, Wednesday, December 3 at 10:30 AM on “The Joan Hamburg Show” on WOR Radio, 710 AM.   

 

The Royal Court Theatre’s production of Anton Chekhov’s THE SEAGULL, in a new version by Christopher Hampton and directed by Ian Rickson, is playing at the Walter Kerr Theatre (219 West 48th Street), where it opened on October 2.   The production plays a strictly limited engagement through December 21. 

 

Ben Brantley, The New York Times, hailed THE SEAGULL as “Magnificent.  The finest production of Chekhov I have ever known.  Ms. Scott Thomas’s performance is funnier, sadder and braver than it was in London.”  Clive Barnes, New York Post, wrote, “Kristin Scott Thomas is heaven-sent for Chekhov.  She gives a great performance in this wonderful production.”  Mike Kuchwara, Associated Press, called the production “A revelation.  Kristin Scott Thomas gives a striking, elegant performance.  THE SEAGULL reverberates with greatness.”

 

THE SEAGULL stars Kristin Scott Thomas as Arkadina, Peter Sarsgaard as Trigorin and Mackenzie Crook as Konstantin, with Art Malik as Dorn, Carey Mulligan as Nina, Pearce Quigley as Medvedenko, Peter Wight as Sorin, Zoe Kazan as Masha, Ann Dowd as Polina, Julian Gamble as Shamrayev, Christopher Patrick Nolan as Yakov, Mary Rose as the Maid and Mark Montgomery as The Cook. 

 

Anton Chekhov’s THE SEAGULL, written in 1895 and the first of the playwright’s masterworks, concerns the romantic entanglements and regrets of a group of actors, writers and artists gathered on a Russian estate.  One of the theatre’s great plays about writing, THE SEAGULL conveys the struggle for new forms and the frustrations and fulfillment of putting words on a page.

 

Director Ian Rickson originally staged this production of THE SEAGULL as his farewell to the Royal Court Theatre, when he ended his seven-year tenure as the distinguished theatre’s Artistic Director.  The limited run became a sold out smash hit and the biggest selling production in the Royal Court’s 50 year history. 

 

THE SEAGULL is designed by Hildegard Bechtler, with lighting by Peter Mumford, sound by Ian Dickinson and music by Stephen Warbeck
