The big Seattle theater news this fall involves the unveiling of some world-premiere works generating a lot of buzz. Here are three notable ones:

• On Sept. 27 comes the debut of "Pullman Porter Blues" at Seattle Repertory Theatre. Seattle playwright Cheryl L. West's portrait of three generations in a family of proud African-American train porters features a keenly watched 1930s Joe Louis boxing match as a backdrop and live blues as the soundtrack.

• And on Sept. 18: "Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet," a dramatization of Jamie Ford's romantic-historical best-seller set in Seattle's Chinatown International District during World War II. Annie Lareau adapts and directs the piece for Book-It Repertory Theatre.

• And on Oct. 12, "Ramayana," ACT Theatre's long-anticipated homage to an action-packed, holy Hindu text, premieres. It's been excerpted and scripted for the stage by Seattle dramatists Yussef El Guindi and Stephanie Timm.
