Michael Seiden and The Poets’ Theatre’s ALBATROSS

Based on Samuel Taylor Coleridge's “The Rime of the Ancient Mariner”
by Matthew Spangler & Benjamin Evett
Directed by Rick Lombardo
Charles Mosesian Theater
MAY 21-24/2015

Albatross is not a mere recitation of Coleridge’s classic “The Rime of the Ancient Mariner.” It’s a breathtaking theatrical reimagining that pulls the Mariner into the 21st century, a 300-year-old immortal doomed to tell his harrowing sea yarn to you, the audience. It’s funny, shocking, and exciting – full of pirates, storms, sea battles, even penguins. Ultimately, it’s a profoundly moving celebration of the power of storytelling, the interconnectedness of life on earth, and the urgent necessity of love.
