The Seagull - Anton Chekhov

The Seagull - Anton Chekhov: "Meryl Streep returns to the stage after a twenty-year absence and provides a rich, playful performance that recalls Margo Channing in All About Eve. Prancing, dancing, even cart-wheeling on stage, she creates the production’s most compelling and complicated character, magnanimous one moment, yet, in the blink of an eye, demanding and petulant as a school child. She seduces both Trigorin and the audience with her charm, sensuality and confidence.
    Kevin Kline, as Trigorin, gives the most natural performance. While he shies away from revealing Trigorin’s calculating nature, especially in his encounters with Nina, he is the most comfortable with his lines"
