Tickets are now on sale for Bedlam Theatre company’s productions of Anton Chekhov’s The Seagull adapted by Anya Reiss and Jane Austen’s Sense & Sensibility adapted by Kate Hamill.

The off-Broadway theatre company, Bedlam (Eric Tucker, Artistic Director; Andrus Nichols; Producing Director), which received critical acclaim and multiple award nominations for its recent productions of Saint Joan and Hamlet, will present.
Played in repertory and with ten actors, The Seagull and Sense & Sensibility are highly theatrical, immersive productions of classic stories by one of America’s most innovative downtown theatre companies.
The cast will feature Laura Baranik, Nigel Gore, Kate Hamill, Andrus Nichols, Jason O’Connell, John Russell, Vaishnavi Sharma, Samantha Steinmetz, Eric Tucker, and Stephan Wolfert.
The creative team includes Erick Tucker (Director), Alexandra Beller (Choreographer), John McDermott (Set Design), Les Dickert (Lighting Design), Angela Huff (Costume Design) and Katharine Whitney (Production Stage Manager).
Bedlam is a company committed to the immediacy of the relationship between the actor and the audience. With large ideas and modest budgets, Bedlam creates theatre in a flexible, raw space, presenting new writing, contemporary reappraisals of the classics and small-scale musical theatre. Their productions always include the audience. Storytelling is paramount. Bedlam believes that innovative use of space can collapse aesthetic distance and bring the audience into direct contact with the dangers and delicacies of life–inciting laughter and chaos, provoking thought and recreating the thrill of live experience.
Bedlam‘s productions of Hamlet and Saint Joan played in repertory at the Lynn Redgrave Theatre in NYC from November 2013–March 2104.
