I’m catching up on my blog posts, so this one’s a little late.  This last June, I got to see another of Book-It Theater’s fine productions, The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay based off the book by the same title written by Michael Chabon with the theater adaptation directed by Myra Platt.  I admit it was a bit meta to be an artist doing sketches of a play about artists, but it was a lot of fun!  Great performances and a great season.  Can’t wait for next year!

Went to sketch another of Book-It’s wonderful shows, this time showcasing Seattle’s history in the adaption of Jim Lynch’s Truth Like the Sun. Adapted by Kevin McKeon and directed by Jane Jones.

 

 

Took the sketchbook to watch Book-It Theater’s rendition of “Frankenstein; Or, The Modern Prometheus”.  The play was directed by David Quicksall.  The theater was pretty dark, and at times it was like sketching with my eyes closed.  Great show and great job by the cast and director!
