Sound’s ‘Indian Ink’ a voyage well worth the voyage

Had a busman’s holiday Saturday night — both because I’m a fan of Seattle’s Sound Theatre Company and because Tom Stoppard is my favorite playwright — to see a performance of “Indian Ink” at Seattle Center Armory.

Wonderful play, great performances (especially by Caitlin Frances and Dhiraj Khanna, pictured) and well worth the trip. There are a few Kitsap connections to mention, too: Jonathan Shue, who has a supporting role, was in Swinging Hammer Productions‘ Bainbridge mounting of “American Buffalo” earlier this year. Jen0821_KSFE_Inknifer Ewing, the Port Townsend-bred actress who was in Bainbridge Performing Arts‘ “A Chorus Line” a couple years back and did much wonderful work at Key City Public Theatre before shifting her base of operations to New York and then Seattle, painted the two portraits used in the show and collaborated with director Andrew McGinn on how the imagery worked with the staging, scenery and lighting. And STG artistic director Teresa Thuman has helmed a number of shows at BPA, most recently “The Who’s Tommy.”

One thing to keep in mind: If you’re ferrying over to see the show might want to try to see one of the 2 p.m. Sunday matinees. At nearly three hours, with a 7:30 p.m. start, it’s impossible to make the 10:30 p.m. Bremertron boat. If it’s an evening show you’re bent on, either catch your boat from Bainbridge, or plan on a late night — the next boat bound for Bremertron is 12:50 a.m.

Anyway, here’s a review, with ticket information: http://www.kitsapsun.com/entertainment/theater-sounds-indian-ink-pulls-out-all-the-stoppard_79916566
