The British playwright Helen Edmundson has brilliantly condensed Tolstoy’s Anna Karenina into a manageable play that incisively lays bare the nature of the characters. And gives insight into Russian society in the 19th century. The acting and...continued

This was so amazing.

It’s been a long time since I have watched an entire production created strictly through the power of the actors. They were magnificent and I was fortunate to find this play.

Wonderfully told, well paced, highly...continued

It was probably too much to ask any company to try to condense this monumental novel into a work for a small cast performing in the round. So much of the vast majesty and deep themes of the story got lost with the minimalist (but inventive)...continued

Well staged and acted with excellent choreographed movement, sound design and costumes. I thought the script and direction nicely focused on a few central characters from this episodic novel.

Good performances. The story differs from the classic film in that it focuses on two characters--Anna and Levin.

Adapting Tolstoy’s masterpiece to theatre is an ambitious project that rarely succeeds that transformation. However, the performance by the Actors Coop was excellent. All actors did a great job at multi acting, playing different roles, and...continued

Interesting approach to the famous L. Tolstoy's classic, talented group of young actors and we could rate it as 3+ stars rating..(Goldstar do not have this feature:) , also the play could be shorter ( 3 plus hours long..), overall a good job.

The guy who plays Levin, the male lead, is astounding. I could barely pull my eyes off him - he alone was worth going.

The director is also genius - to have done so much with such a small theater and to have such fluid stage direction... her...continued

I would give the entire production 6 stars if I could. Not only was the acting phenomenal, the lighting, direction, and music all complemented Tolstoy’s original work - culminating in a wonderful night out.

My husband and I really enjoyed this performance! Small stage, Shakespearean style, 8 actors with supporting actors playing multiple roles. It was a very powerful performance, period appropriate costumes, with very compelling acting. We were very...continued

The intimate staging and the way the story was told was engaging. Giving an outside perspective from Anna's by a character that seemed so trivial in the book was brilliant. The two leads kept my focus throughout and the ensamble were darling. A...continued
