Burien Actors Theatreâ€™s next production, the psychological thrillerÂ The Letters, opens this FRIDAY night, April 8, and runs through May 1. This production will feature live music performed pre-show and at intermission, specialty drinks themed to the show and free on-site parking, plus an opening night party. â€œTHE LETTERSâ€ InÂ The Letters,Â written by John W. Lowell, a Ministry Director calls Anna, a bureaucrat, into his office for a meeting. It is 1931 in the Soviet Union and things arenâ€™t what they seem. The interview becomes a suspenseful game of cat and mouse in which being the last to flinch may mean the difference between life and death. Based on Soviet efforts to edit composer Tchaikovskyâ€™s letters, this taut thriller is a vivid slice of paranoid life under Stalin. Performances are Fridays and Saturdays atÂ 8 p.m., andÂ SundayÂ matinees atÂ 2 p.m.Â at Burien Actors Theatre, 14501 4th Ave. S.W. in Burien. SAVE $5 WITH OUR COUPON!
