Stupid F#@king Bird Review 2
Arden Theatre’s cofounder returns with kind-of Chekhovian ‘Bird’
(Posner) has a taste for redoing the classics, but (Stupid Fucking) Bird is a jumbled, highly personalized rewrite of Chekhov. It became a way for Posner to look at events in his own life (the birth of a daughter) and his surroundings (politics, his life as an artist) and spin Seagull into autobiography.
(Producing Artistic Director Terrence J.) Nolen says he was ” struck by his old friend’s deconstructionist view, one that captures Chekhov brilliantly, but is very much a new Posner work.”
