The nineteenth century play Hedda Gabler by Ibsen has been an all-time hit on Broadway right from the time of its initial launch in 1902. Hedda Gabler Broadway shows have always been received with immense interest as the interpretation of the protagonist Hedda has undergone significant changes over the years.

The search for freedom by a woman in the nineteenth century trapped in a marriage which offers her no excitement has aroused a lot of curiosity and still does in the 21st century. Today, Roundabout Theatre’s production of Hedda Gabler starring Mary Louise Parker is being touted as one of the most interesting productions of the play, ever done till date.

Hedda Gabler Broadway shows have been reinterpreted by the directors to locate them in the contemporary scenarios. However, all this has yielded mixed results. Certain productions haven’t really gone down well with people as a realist Hedda is preferred over a sensational one. The journey of this woman is regarded as the journey of an individual in search of an unrestricted environment. The sort of torture that she inflicts on people around her has been justified as a human instinct to take revenge.

Marriage in the contemporary scenario also faces a lot of issues like the one seen in this play and it’s absolutely eye opening too that the condition of women over the past two centuries has hardly changed. The 21st century audience connects with the play at various levels and this lends the production certain newness.

Hedda in certain productions has been considered the female Hamlet. It is of course a great honor to be compared to a Shakespearean character. The struggle for identity of the character that is witnessed - is it the struggle of a woman alone or of humanity in itself? Various actresses have portrayed Hedda in different shades and this fact has lent the play a great deal of variety over the many years that it has been enacted at Broadway. At times Hedda becomes the representative of a marriage of no substance. Off late she has been regarded as a manipulative villain.
