3 Penny Opera – Musical Play – Shoreline Community College
The Turn of the Screw – Play – Book-It Repertory Theatre
“Turn of the Screw” stage play adaptation w/ Book-It Repertory Theatre at Seattle Center. Eerie gothic supernatural ghost thriller. But too confusing because of British subtlety. Was it all a delusion? #suspense
The Children – Play – Seattle Repertory Theater
“The Children” play at Seattle Rep. Bizzare, random, & slow. Not a fan. Good acting though.
The Best of Everything – Play – UW School of Drama
Opening night to “The Best of Everything” stage play adaptation w/ the University of Washington School of Drama. Short, light, cute, simple, funny, fast-moving story (just how I like it). Great performers too. Digging the innocent 1950s vibe. #secretaries #workingWomen
Admissions – Play – Seattle Public Theater
“Admissions” at Seattle Public Theater. Gorgeous suburban set. Great dialogue & thought-provoking perspectives but the play didn’t provide a solution for racial or reverse discrimination. #whitePrivilege #whiteGuilt #diversity
Our Country’s Good – Play – Strawberry Theatre Workshop
“Our Country’s Good” play at 12th Avenue Arts w/ Strawberry Theatre Workshop. Celebrated the lifechanging power of the stage! Well-performed but ole English dialogue was difficult to follow. While I’m not a fan of cast doubling, it was done mindfully & intentionally. #Australia #Prison #Jail #Convicts #Criminals #Inmates
The Revolutionists – Play – ArtsWest
“The Revolutionists” play at ArtsWest Playhouse. Fun Marie Antoinette character. Novel chickflick/chicklit take on the French Revolution’s “Reign of Terror.” Wish there was more action though. #French #feminism #girlPower #sisterhood #basic #sassy #fierce #millennial #guillotine
True West – Play – Seattle Repertory Theatre
“True West” play at Seattle Repertory Theatre. Intricate set … albeit tiny. Deliciously dislikeable trailer trash brothers unsettlingly doing what you don’t want them to do. Unexpected (kinda senseless) ending. #siblings #siblingrivalry
Dance Nation – Play – Washington Ensemble Theatre
“Dance Nation” at 12th Avenue Arts w/ Washington Ensemble Theatre. Great A/V, lighting, & lead dancers. Confusing soliloquy-like moments. Expected more cutthroat backstabbing drama. Disturbing nude locker scene, considering the adult actors played preteen characters. Wasn’t sold that they were all dancers.
Hershey Felder’s Monsieur Chopin – Show – Seattle Repertory Theatre
Hershey Felder’s sold out “Monsieur Chopin” at Seattle Repertory Theater. Talented pianist performed songs (including a nocturne I can play) from my favorite composer. Surprised there were no etudes though.
