Sometimes less is more

Last weekend we saw Book-it Theater’s production of Sense and Sensibility.  All of the productions we have seen there have been excellent – Jane Eyre, Cider House Rules.  The hallmark of their style of theater is that the play comes from a book and the narrative is spoken as dialogue by the characters in the production.  It’s an unusual technique, but one that makes the experience all the richer.  Another hallmark of their plays, at least the ones I have attended is the spare set – a window here, a curtain there, a few essential props.  This focuses your attention on the characters and the story.

We had some time before the play to wander the Seattle Center grounds.  Here’s a beautiful old locust.  (Notice the crutches.) With just the lawn under it, you appreciate the trunk and interesting branch silhouette.
