Anna Karenina

ANNA KARENINA by Leo Tolstoy

October 22 – November 23, 2014 calendar
Adapted for the stage by Helen Edmundson
Directed by Stephanie Gularte

Torn between duty and passion, Anna Karenina struggles to make the choice between a cold husband, a beloved child, and the dashing Vronksy. Society turns against her, Anna becomes doubtful of Vronsky’s love and her world begins to fall apart. This award-winning adaptation of Tolstoy’s epic interweaves Anna’s story with those of Levin and the beautiful young Kitty, the selfless Dolly and her adored Stiva – their hope in stark contrast with Anna’s despair. Set against a vast and richly textured canvas of nineteenth-century Russia, Anna Karenina was deemed “flawless” by Fyodor Dostoevsky and the best novel ever written by William Faulkner. 

Directed by Founding Artistic Director Stephanie Gularte, who helmed the highly theatrical productions of ENRON and MACBETH, this production promises to thrill audiences with its unique new approach to the classic novel. Featuring: Lenne Klingaman as Anna, Brian Patrick Williams as Levin, Rob August as Vronsky, Scott Coopwood as Karenin and Michael Stevenson as Stiva. Also featuring:  Jenna Cedusky, Misty Day, Torin Lusebrink, Carissa Meagher, Sarah Rothaus and Melanie Smith.
