25th Annual Putnum County Spelling Bee – Musical – Village Theatre

“25th Annual Putnum County SpellingBee” musical comedy at Village Theatre w/ Ellen, Huong, Nate, Tiffany, Will, Alice, & Sam. Funny portrayals. Novel audience participation. Talented actors. Seemless improv. But I wish there were more memorable songs and a plot. #quirky

9 to 5 – Musical – Twelfth Night Productions

9 to 5 the Musical w/ Twelfth Night Productions. Good Dolly Parton impersonation. Always pleasantly surprised when a community theater cast manages to perform a decent tap dance break. Lots of potential needed better sound engineering to fully showcase the talent. Poorly-written unconvincing ending.  #musical #secretaries

Charlie & the Chocolate Factory – Musical – Paramount Theatre

#GoldenTicket to Roald Dahl's Charlie and the Chocolate Factory live #musical adaptation w/ Seattle Theatre Group. Clever #oompaLoompa
“Golden Ticket” to Roald Dahl’s “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” live musical adaptation w/ Seattle Theatre Group. Clever Oompa Loompa “stage magic.” Diverse sets, scenes, costumes, caricatures, & songs. Great Russian father-daughter duo. But new songs were unmemorable and the theater was surprisingly empty! #Chocolate #Candy

The Last World Octopus Wrestling Champion – Musical – ArtsWest

“The Last World Octopus Wrestling Champion” by Justin Huertas w/ ArtsWest Playhouse and Gallery. Proud to see a great musical that features pinoy/pinay characters & acknowledges Filipino culture! I’m also a sucker for the dangerous (but oh so comforting) hope that “love at first sight” & soulmates exist.
