Running Time: Under two hours with one 13-minute intermission

An evening exploring the LGBTQ figures who shaped Russia's culture and destiny, created by Andrew Russell and Josef Krebs. From Russia's national awakening under Ivan the Terrible, to its greatest cultural export, Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky, and now the persecution and oppression of the Putin regime, LGBTQ people have been central to its evolution as a global power. Hear the voices of these figures spanning a thousand years as we reveal what it means to be a Queer Russian.

SeagullThe Seagull Project was formed out of a passion for the great works of Anton Chekhov. Having met and collaborated on Seattle Shakespeare Company's wildly successful Threepenny Opera in 2011, the founding producers immediately sought a new collaboration; one which allowed the actors to take the time needed to create an ensemble and honor the work of Chekhov with bravery, honesty, simplicity, and elegance. In January of 2013, they opened The Seagull in ACT's Falls Theatre, garnering both audience and critical acclaim. In April of 2014, The Seagull Project will have the great distinction of becoming the first American ensemble in history to perform at the Ilkhom Theatre in Tashkent, Uzbekistan - a Seattle sister city. Upon their return, they will begin work on Chekhov's Three Sisters, which will be produced through the Central Heating Lab in 2015, ACT's 50th anniversary year. Learn more about The Seagull Project at
