“The comedy has three female roles, six male roles, four acts, a view of a lake, much conversation about literature . . .  and five tons of love.” So wrote Anton Chekhov to a friend about The Seagull, the 1895 play that established his reputation as a playwright and catapulted the famed Moscow Art Theatre to prominence. It’s all quite simple: Medvedenko loves Masha who loves Konstantin who loves Nina who loves Trigorin who’s involved with Arkadina. Meanwhile, Paulina is married to Shamreyev, but she pines for Dr. Dorn. What could go wrong? “So much love! Oh, that bewitching lake!”
