Description

This subscription allows you to pick from any standard-priced performance (Wed-Fri eve. & Sat mat.) of each play:

*Frankenstein; Or, The Modern Prometheus *

By Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley

Adapted and directed by David Quicksall

February 12-March 9 2014

Gothic thriller, passionate romance, and a cautionary tale rolled into one, Mary Shelley’s seminal horror story of an obsessed young scientist and his monstrous creation has become a world-wide cultural icon. Book-It Adaptor/Director David Quicksall, who created the breathtaking Moby-Dick, or The Whale for the company, will helm this production.

*Truth Like the Sun *

By Jim Lynch

Adapted by Jane Jones & Kevin McKeon, directed by Jane Jones

April 23-May 18 2014

Book-It is thrilled to produce the latest of local author Jim Lynch’s three novels. Roger Morgan was a smooth-talking young promoter who built Seattle’s most famous icon for the 1962 fair. Thirty-nine years later in the shadow of his Space Needle, the Seattle raconteur is a mayoral candidate dogged by an unscrupulous young reporter looking for long-buried dirt. “Enveloping and propulsive,” Lynch’s latest novel aims a light at the extraordinary events that put Seattle on the map.

*The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay *

By Michael Chabon

Abridged version by Jeff Schwager, directed by Myra Platt

June 4-July 13 2014

In 1939 Joe Kavalier smuggles himself, Houdini-style, out of Nazi-occupied Prague and reappears in New York to live with his cousin, Sammy Clay. It’s the golden age of comic books and the ambitious pair—the storyteller and the artist—invent the perfect superhero for America on the brink of the Second World War. Chabon’s tale of escape, transformation, magic, and moxie is a modern-day epic­—Book-It will present this novel as a theatrical event complete with dinner break.
