Hubbard Hall Center for the Arts and Education in Cambridge, New York presents “Stupid F*%king Bird,” a new adaptation of Chekhov's “The Seagull” by Aaron Posner, weekends January 24 through February 2. The show is produced in partnership with Bennington College.

An aspiring director rampages against the art created by his mother’s generation. A young actress wrestles with an aging Hollywood star for the affections of a renowned novelist. And everyone discovers just how disappointing love, art, and growing up can be.

We were joined by Director Kirk Jackson, actor Jesse Pennington, and Executive and Artistic Director of Hubbard Hall David Snider.

In Lee’s Blessing’s “A Walk in the Woods,” two men, one American and one Soviet, take walks in the woods over the course of a year and struggle to save the world from certain annihilation.

Based on a real incident, the compelling and topical play resonates in fresh ways today, as audiences watch two intelligent and caring politicians lean into the careful craft of true diplomacy and try to save the world.

“A Walk in the Woods” will be performed at Hubbard Hall in Cambridge, New York January 25 through February 3.

Executive & Artistic Director of Hubbard Hall David Snider, Kirk Jackson, and former head of theater for NY State Council on the Arts Robert Zukerman join us now to tell us more. Snider and Zuckerman co-star in “A Walk in the Woods” at Hubbard Hall, and Kirk Jackson, who is a professor of theater at Bennington College, directs.

“The Mystery of Edwin Drood” is a musical by Rupert Holmes for which he received Tony Awards for Best Book and Best Original Score in 1986. The show, then called “Drood” also won Best Musical that year.

Based on Charles Dickens’ last, unfinished novel and murder mystery, the show stops just before the murderer is revealed and at each performance the audience decides who “done it.”

Rupert Holmes has adapted the script into a new quick and hilarious 90 minute version. The new version will be presented at Hubbard Hall in Cambridge, NY with a further adjustment by Holmes for the action of the play to be set at Hubbard Hall.

Performances begin tonight and we are joined now by composer/playwright/lyricist Rupert Holmes and Executive & Artistic Director of the Hubbard Hall Center for the Arts and Education David Andrew Snider.
