About, FAQ, and Contact Information

Who are you?

I’m Allan just a mild-mannered oncology healthcare professional by day and theater enthusiast by night. When I was a freshman, I made a vow to myself, “I’m going to see a show every week when I grow up!” I finally graduated and now attend an average of 2 shows per week (more than 100 per year). I’m also an auxiliary member of Seattle’s only theatre critics circle, Seattle Theatre Writers. The auxiliary supports the selection process for the annual Gypsy Rose Lee Award nominees and winners.

Why did you make this website?

A lot of local shows don’t have a lot of wide publicity or reviews so I thought this would be a cool outlet to tell the world that there’s more to performing arts than the major touring productions. It’s sad when people their favorite musical is “Wicked” or “Hamilton.” They were okay, but there are so many more amazing shows in your own backyard. You don’t have to go to the big apple to experience great theater.

What’s your favorite musical?

That’s really tough. My favorite all time musical is “Next to Normal.” I LOVE rock musicals. It’s easier to say my top 10 (in no particular order):

  • Next to Normal
  • Legally Blonde
  • Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat – American Idol Version Only!
  • Book of Mormon
  • Xanadu
  • Bonnie and Clyde
  • First Date
  • Heather’s
  • Murder Ballad
  • Rent
  • Honorable Mentions: Kinky Boots, Hairspray, Grease, Best Little Whorehouse in Texas

Will you review my show?

Sure … if I didn’t see a show from your production company that I hated! I’ll do a review within 24 hours of the show if I get a free ticket or two. Any center seat(s) would be great! 🙂

Will you add a show to your calendar?

Sure … if I didn’t see a show from your production company that I hated!

I don’t agree with your review.

Please open up a dialogue with me by leaving a comment on the post. I’d love to debate.

Are you single?

Ha! Yes. I’m lookin’ for a handsome nice successful man so we to buy season tickets together. It’s sad buying single season tickets because you’re basically planning to be alone for a year. ;-P
