Though The New York Times compared it (glowingly) to Chinatown, the city beneath the web of intrigue spun by author Jim Lynch in his latest novel Truth Like the Sun is Seattle, as intriguing and mysterious as ever. Now Book-It Repertory Theatre adapts Lynch's widely-celebrated novel into an engrossing and thrilling stage play. In the early '60s, Roger Morgan was Seattle's golden boy, the man who sketched the design for the Space Needle on a napkin. Nearly 40 years later, he's still as charming as ever and now wants to be mayor. But his dreams might falter thanks to an unscrupulous young reporter, sniffing for dirt and stopping at nothing to find it. Jane Jones directs an adaptation by Kevin McKeon at the Centre Theatre.

It is hard to put a novel of this length and complexity on the stage, but I think Book-It did a fine job. The didactic monologues were kept to a minimum, but still slowed the pace and made the play over-long, however. The actress who played Anna was absolutely perfect and every scene with her was enthralling. Costumes and stage were well done. The ice skating scene was remarkably effective.
In the highest circles of Russian society, an unexpected encounter finds the beautiful Anna Karenina and dashing Count Vronsky desperately, madly in love. Tolstoy’s classic smolders with passion and unfulfilled desire.
