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.

Shaw is one of my favorite playwrights, and Pygmalion is one of my favorite plays. We were very excited at the prospect of seeing the production, and we were not one bit disappointed. The cast was marvellous. Their accents were impeccable, and their command of Shaw's wordy language was fabulous. The one piece of staging with which I disagreed was that of the first appearance of Alfred Doolittle. I thought he was constantly speaking upstage and therefore difficult to understand. His second appearance was much better blocked. A thoroughly delightful experience of a very well-produced play!
Following Sound Theatre Company’s critically acclaimed productions of The Belle of Amherst, Top Girls, and Shakespeare’s _Troilus and Cressida _among others, _Pygmalion _builds on STC’s tradition of presenting plays which center on the role of language in our lives.
Company members Frank Lawler as Henry Higgins and Carolyn Marie Monroe as Eliza Doolittle lead a cast of Seattle actors: Bill Higham, Daniel Guttenberg, Daniel Stoltenberg, Chris Hille, Lee Ann Hittenberg, Lindsay Lucas Arnold, Judy Sanders, Gianni Truzzi, and Kelsey Hamilton.
