Alfred Hitchcock's iconic adaptation of The Birds has certainly reached countless more audience members than Daphne du Maurier's novelette on which it was based. Here, Irish playwright Conor McPherson uses the book to create the stage adaptation, so expect a purer encapsulation of du Maurier's vision that's freed from the personal neuroses that clouded Hitchcock's Birds. The Mosaic Theatre has had an enviable history with playwright McPherson; its renowned 2008 production of his ensemble drama The Seafarer took home three awards from the New Times Broward/Palm Beach in 2009. But this show will likely put sound design and visual effects to the ultimate test.
Thursdays-Sundays, 8 p.m. Starts: March 8. Continues through April 1, 2012
