Houston audiences will revel in Josie de Guzman, James Black and the rest of the ensemble cast performing in The Seagull at the Alley Theatre. The 1895 classic by playwright Anton Chekhov deals with the emotional and romantic tangle a group of artists find themselves in on a Russian estate. While it’s more than 100 years old, the play has grown more and more poignant, making it a must-see for this season. 7:30 p.m. Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Sundays, 8 p.m. Friday, 2:30 and 8 p.m. Saturdays. Through March 4. 615 Texas. For information, call 713-220-5700 or visit www.alleytheatre.org. $25 to $62.
