Anna K (Chris Davis): Fringe Review 40.2

It would be fun to call ANNA K an irreverent romp through Tolstoy’s 1870s novel, Anna Karenina, but in fact playwright Chris Davis reverences the material in his own way. For all its comedy, and there’s plenty in his South Philly-style version, the play scans the storyline and retains underlying issues.

Happier times: some guy (Andrew Carroll), Chris Davis, and Doug Williams at the opening of IRC's Ondine.
