Things I will miss about Seagull:
-The people, etc, etc (this encompasses everything about friendship and memories and good times I’ve had – the rest of my bullet points will be more specifics)
-Craig shouting “I forgot my walking stick” at me
-Kostya’s Act I monologue about his mother, while he plays piano
-All the piano music, actually (luckily it’s all available on soundcloud!)
-Masha’s beautiful hair
-Waiting for Act III to start and making faces across the stage at the people in the other wing
-The Act III-Act IV transition
Things I will not miss about Seagull:
-The schedule, etc, etc
-2:45 running time…and then a full reset at the end of each show
-Watching the prop grapes get ickier and ickier over the week
-Resetting air vibrations
My favorite lines (in no particular order, and completely out of context):
Sorin: Bring ALL the horses here, NOW!
Arkadina: Light as a feather! I could play a girl of fifteen.
Masha: Once I get married, I won’t have love on my mind. I’ll have new problems to worry about.
Trigorin (to Kostya): Irina Nikoleyevna said you are ready to let bygones be bygones.
Polina: I know I’m too jealous. I’m so ashamed. You must be sick of me.
Dorn: No, no. If you must keep talking, do.
Seagull isn’t closing quite yet, but I’m starting to feel the first pangs. I’ll miss you, MTC. Can’t wait to sit in the audience and watch Fuddy Meers in a month!
