The Hawaii Shakespeare Festival (HSF) celebrates its sixteenth season with a festival-within-a-festival at the newly remodeled The ARTS at Marks Garage. The 2017 season concludes with a Chekhov mini-festival, headlined by Seagull, Chekhov’s masterpiece of love, innocence, betrayal, and the price of pursuing an artistic life. Seagull stars Nick Amador as Konstantin, Olga Kalashnikova as the star-struck Nina, Stacy Ray as Irina and Alex Monti Fox as Trigorin. Seagull is directed by Tony Pisculli and presented in a new translation by Tony Pisculli and Olga Kalashnikova. Two comedic Chekhov shorts will be presented one hour beforehand and are free and open to the public: Avenger, an original adaptation from the short story of the same name, and Bear, "a joke in one-act."
Advance tickets are $20 through Brown Paper Tickets at 1-800-838-3006 or online at HawaiiShakes.org. Discounted tickets are available for all Wednesday ($10) and Thursday ($15) performances.
