Only four more chances to see Electra!

Seattle actress and writer Marya Sea Kaminsky steals the show with her moving (and rocking, roiling, spitting, moaning, shaking) portrayal of Electra, a woman imprisoned by her own mourning and hunger for vengeance. She is riveting. But there's lots more to like in this production--notably Sheila Daniels' clever directorial touches, including her nods to modernity...which I think falls under the category of spoilers. So I won't say exactly what they are but I will say, go, and stay alert for Aegisthus's entry, which is perfectly, subtly hilarious, just before the final bloodbath.

Plays through Sunday night at the Seattle Center House Theater.
