Ibsen's most beguiling antiheroine is given a new twist in Jon Robin Baitz's acclaimed adaptation of Hedda Gabler

She's no longer the chilly, inscrutable manipulator but a woman with, as the New York Times put it, "a context and a persuasive raison d'être." Ibsen's classic play here emerges with renewed vitality and newfound dramatic resonance

" when else have you seen a Hedda Gabler that moved with such compelling force and fluency? Jon Robin Baitz's loosened-up, colloquial translation is perfect " ~ NY Times

' [demystifies] Ibsen's daunting antiheroine[cuts] away the grande-dame mannerisms and aura of theatricality that the character tends to trail along with those sweeping 19th-century skirts[a] nimble adaptation " ~ Variety

" [a] fluently idiomatic adaptation by Jon Robin Baitz " ~ NY Post
