"These actors, directed by John Langs, have been rehearsing this production of Checkhov's Seagull for nine months—in the old Russian style instead of the quick, four-week American rehearsal period—and the experiment seems to have paid off. It's hard not to fall in love with Alexandra Tavares as Nina, the naive country girl who dreams of becoming a famous actress and steals hearts along the way. Tavares's performance has an unusual combination of radiance and earthiness—fitting for a provincial girl with big-city dreams. Not earthy like dung, but sweet and musky like a loft full of hay."
