Surprisingly, Bob Falls directed The Seagull as it should be, minimalistically. His adaptation was true to the playwright, slightly modernized, but it worked. The acting was very good to excellent except for the role of Nina. This actor was miscast and clumsy. Yes, she is supposed to be a peasant girl (just what she looked like) but one with the looks and charm to rise (with a little luck) above her class, not believable in this case. She moved props unintentionally and knocked the rug into a curl which Konstantin later had to straighten out. Mary Beth Fisher and Frances Guinan were outstanding. With a different Nina this could have been one almost perfect evening of Chekhov.
