The Bonesetter’s Daughter – Play – Book-it Repertory Theatre

“The Bonesetter’s Daughter” stage play adaptation of Amy Tan’s book w/ dad at Book-it Repertory. Layered story w/ many great themes. Makes me want to write down my parents’ story. The cast really hustled w/ all the cast doubling! #China #Chinese #Asian #Asia

Mrs. Caliban – Play – Book-it Repertory Theatre

“Mrs. Caliban” stage adaptation of the novella at Book-it Repertory Theatre. An ocean monster man disrupts the monontous routine of a lonely unfulfilled suburban #housewife. With such a #bizarre story, this #play was oddly #indescribable (in a good way). #fantasy

The Turn of the Screw – Play – Book-It Repertory Theatre

“Turn of the Screw” stage play adaptation w/ Book-It Repertory Theatre at Seattle Center. Eerie gothic supernatural ghost thriller. But too confusing because of British subtlety. Was it all a delusion? #suspense

Everything is Illuminated – Play – Book-it Repertory Theatre

“Everything is Illuminated” stage #play adaptation w/ Book-it Repertory Theatre. Endearing #Ukrainian/Russian English accent/translation. Novel old-timey projection medium. Nice touch w/ live #Jewish/#Yiddish background music. But parallel stories were hard to follow. #Holocaust #WWII

Behold the Dreamers – Play – Book-It Repertory Theatre

#Stage #play adaptation of Behold the Dreamers at Book-It Repertory Theatre. Well-written captivating storytelling. Reminds me of the sacrifices my #immigrant parents made to achieve the #AmericanDream. Loved the juxtaposition between the rich & poor. Surprised that so many seats were empty at such a good play.
