Loggers bring vintage Chekhov to the Norton Clapp Theatre stage. Chekhov's The Sea Gull, which opens Friday, is directed by Geoff Proehl, with scenic design by Kurt Walls, lighting by Richard Moore, and costumes by Mishka Navarre. "Few plays speak more honestly and more compassionately about the shortness of life and the challenges of living with an open heart," says Proehl. The show runs Oct. 27–28 and Nov. 2–4, at 7:30 p.m., with a matinee on Nov. 4, at 2 p.m. Admission is $7 for faculty, staff, and students; tickets available at tickets.pugetsound.edu.
