Hedda Gabler has been a runaway success on Broadway ever since it was first performed in 1902. Playwright Henrik Ibsen said about his character Hedda that he wanted her to be more a father’s daughter than her husband’s wife hence the maiden name Gabler sticks to her. On her inward journey in search of individual and spiritual freedom, Hedda explores her options for escape. Hedda Gabler tickets are sure going to be worth the price.

The Many Shades Of The Protagonist

A tormented woman in the late nineteenth century, the enactment of this caged woman has been done in varying shades - as a victim of circumstance, an idealistic heroine, and a prototypical feminist but off late she has begun to being regarded as a manipulative villain. The kind of torture that Hedda inflicts on others has often been called sadistic by audience but the portrayal of the protagonist by various actors has also made a huge impact on the reception of the play as such. There have been performances where Hedda has also been called a female Hamlet, perhaps a great achievement to be put at par with a character of Shakespeare’s creation. Attempts to modernize Hedda have also happened on Broadway before but sadly the original genius of Ibsen has not been matched till date. The realism of the original is much more acceptable than the sensationalism of the modern.

Roundabout Theatre’s production of Hedda Gabler starring Mary Louise Parker is being touted as not only a unique production but a version with an entirely different perspective. The theme of a conventional marriage explored in the late nineteenth century, enacted on the 21st century stage seen through a fresh lens is sure to cause a lot of excitement. Is it a woman’s struggle for identity that we witness or is it an un-gendered dilemma of an individual caught in a limiting society. Realism at its best, this was Ibsen’s last realist play before he dabbled with other forms of theatre. Have you got your Hedda Gabler tickets yet?
