Earlier this season, Broadway audiences were wowed by director Ian Rickson’s critically acclaimed production of Anton Chekhov’s THE SEAGULL, in a new version by Christopher Hampton.  The production began performances on September 16, 2008, opened October 2, and ended its successful limited engagement on December 21 at the Walter Kerr Theatre.


Here’s what that extraordinary company has been working on since THE SEAGULL:


Kristin Scott Thomas (Arkadina) made her Broadway debut in THE SEAGULL.   In addition to her Golden Globe-nominated performance in I’ve Loved You So Long, Scott Thomas also appears in Confessions of a Shopaholic, the upcoming film version of Noel Coward’s Easy Virtue, and plays the role of John Lennon’s aunt in the film, Nowhere Boy, currently filming. 



Peter Sarsgaard (Trigorin) followed his Broadway debut in THE SEAGULL with another Chekhov role in Uncle Vanya at Classic Stage Company.  He can be seen in the current film, The Mysteries of Pittsburgh, and also appeared in the recent Nick Hornby movie, An Education.



Mackenzie Crook (Konstantin Treplev) made his Broadway debut in THE SEAGULL, and just completed filming The Adventures of Tintin: Secret of the Unicorn in Los Angeles. 



Carey Mulligan (Nina) made her Broadway debut in THE SEAGULL.  She recently caused a sensation at the Sundance Film Festival with roles in Nick Hornby’s An Education (also with Peter Sarsgaard) and in Shana Feste’s The Greatest.



Zoe Kazan (Masha) appeared in the film, Revolutionary Road, and has roles in the upcoming films, The Private Lives of Pippa Lee and I Hate Valentine’s Day.  She received enthusiastic reviews for her play, Absalom, which recently premiered at the Humana Festival.



Ian Rickson (Director) just staged the UK premiere of Jez Butterworth’s Parlour Song to critical acclaim at the Almeida Theatre where the production is currently scheduled to run through May 9.



THE SEAGULL starred 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.  

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 was designed by Hildegard Bechtler, with lighting by Peter Mumford, sound by Ian Dickinson and music by Stephen Warbeck.  

THE SEAGULL was produced by Sonia Friedman Productions, Bob Boyett, Robert G. Bartner, Dede Harris, Norman & Steven Tulchin, Fox Theatricals, Dena Hammerstein, Sharon Karmazin, Olympus Theatricals, Spring Sirkin, Tara Smith, Morton Swinsky, Karl Sydow, The Weinstein Company, Falkenstein/deRoy, Florin/Hirschhorn and Gutterman/McGinnis.
