Jonathan Livingston Chekhov
The English language is full of peculiar words--just ask anyone who's studied for the GRE or LSAT. Here's one of recent discovery: dramaturg. The definition is as unconventional as the word itself. It's a person in the theater whose responsibilities range from casting a play and assisting the director to creating programs and acting as playwright. The Kitchen Dog Theater recently collaborated with Allison Horsley--a nationally-recognized dramaturg--on its production of The Seagull by Anton Chekhov. The play is a classic, with aspects of both tragedy and comedy, and takes the audience on a journey of the human condition. Horsley advised the cast and crew on getting into the deeper meaning of each character--adding valuable insight that will make the production all the more intense. The Seagull runs through May 8 at the Kitchen Dog Theater, 3120 McKinney Ave. For tickets ($15 to $25) and showtimes, call 214-953-1055 or visit kitchendogtheater.org.
Thursdays-Sundays. Starts: April 9. Continues through May 8, 2010
