“National Theatre Live: The Seagull”: Michigan Theater.

Broadcast of a taped National Theatre (London) performance of the Chekhov tragicomedy about the making of art, the juggernaut of time, dashed dreams, and misguided desires. This stripped-down revival was called “maverick” and “strangely gripping” by The Guardian, but “flattened” and “a production that doesn’t fly” by Variety. Directed by Jamie Lloyd and starring Emilia Clarke, who won fame in HBO’s Game of Thrones. 5 p.m. $22 (University Musical Society members, $18) in advance online (recommended) & at the door. For updated schedule, see MichTheater.org.
