Anna Karenina

Rated 5.0

This remarkable staging of Helen Edmundson's adaptation of the classic Russian novel benefits from deft direction (Stephanie Gularte), excellent use of ballet and movement (choreographed by Shannon Mahoney), and outstanding lead performers (Lenne Klingaman as the eponymous Anna and Brian Patrick Williams as the upstanding Levin). Add in an exemplary supporting cast and top-notch production values for a production that's as classic as, well, a Tolstoy novel. Th, F, Sa 8pm; Su 2pm; 7pm 11/11; 2pm 11/1 & 11/8.
