WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Tolstoy's classic story of love and marriage in Imperial Russia comes to our Main Stage in a new adaptation by Kevin McKeon, adaptor of Snow Falling on Cedars. This tragic love story has been called by some the greatest novel ever written--it certainly has one of the most famous first lines: "Happy families are all alike; every unhappy family is unhappy in its own way." When Anna's husband refuses to release her from their marriage to pursue her love for Count Vronsky, the wheels are set in motion for the ultimate sacrifice. Anna Karenina isn't concerned with observing the minutiae of social etiquette, like Jane Austen, nor with righting social injustices, like Dickens. It's about uncontrollable passions, and emotional and sexual betrayal, set against one of the most romantic periods of world history.
