It's 1959 in Greenwich Village and Hollywood, and a family of troubled dreamers yearns for love, immortality and survival.  Irenie, a glamorous Broadway star, Gore, her novelist/screenwriter lover, Conrad, her Beat poet son, and Nina, the lovely young African-American everyone loves, engage in an epic struggle for passion and connection in this haunting new musical, rich with Chekhovian longing.

Soaring.  The cast showcases…fine talent.”   -LA Times

“A sweeping, gently elegant, resplendently appointed musical adaptation…evocative, heroic musical achievement.  Gulls is a major, major new musical thanks to the obvious endowments…of a scholarly bookwriter with his signature dark sense of humor, as well as the composer's arrestingly evocative musical compositions, the incomparable mind's eye view endemic to any project touched by Kubzansky's gifts, a cast that could not be improved upon if anyone were to try, and the incredibly first-class facilities and design elements offered to any show fortunate enough to debut at the Boston Court.”   -Entertainment Today

“Simply remarkable.”   -Pasadena Star News

“Textured staging and wonderful performances.”   -LA Weekly

“You couldn’t ask for a finer cast.   All ten actors work together as a seamless ensemble of troubled souls who are desperately searching for love, meaning, and acceptance during a transitional period of history…dynamic.”   -Stagehappenings.com
