About the Production

The Nina Variations directed by Yoni Weiss, was performed in New York City at the John DeSotelle Studio Theatre on February 16 and 17, 2018.

In this funny, fierce and heartbreaking homage to The Seagull, Steven Dietz puts Chekhov’s star-crossed lovers in a room and doesn’t let them out. In forty-three variations on their famous final scene, Nina (Alexandra Cockrell), a young actress, and Treplev (Michael Liebhauser), a young writer, pit their vibrant wit and soaring passions against one another in a fast-paced tour de force of romantic entanglement.

Associate directed by Sarah Hurley, featuring costume design by Alex Church-Gonzales, lighting design by Quentin Madia, photography by Noah DiRenzo, stage management by Noah Sarkowsky, assistant stage management by Tori Pierce, and an original score by Moya Violet.
