BWW Review: Cafe Nordo's SAUCED is a Delectable Feast in Many WaysBWW Review: Cafe Nordo's SAUCED is a Delectable Feast in Many Ways
by Jay Irwin - Oct 19, 2015

From the moment you set foot into Cafe Nordo for their current production of "Sauced" you're struck with the wonderful sense of being transported back to the 1930's. But then, with all their ambience and commitment to tone you're no longer in Cafe Nordo but in the Diamond Club. And once there you should prepare yourself for mystery, intrigue, love, lust and betrayal all set to some gorgeous 30's tunes and served up with a five course meal and drinks for which every new bite causes an "oh my God!" moment.

Cafe Nordo's SAUCED to Open 10/15Cafe Nordo's SAUCED to Open 10/15
by BWW News Desk - Sep 16, 2015

In 2010, in the back warehouse of Theo Chocolate, Cafe Nordo went from a quirky experiment to a Seattle artistic institution with their smash hit Sauced. Set in a bar in Pioneer Square just after the end of prohibition, this seductive noir thriller drew sold-out houses for the extended run. Five years later Cafe Nordo had arrived at a new historic venue in Pioneer Square, and the reimagined hit show Sauced will kick off their new season in the perfect vintage venue - Nordo's Culinarium.

BWW Review: SMT's High Energy JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR Lacks DepthBWW Review: SMT's High Energy JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR Lacks Depth
by Jay Irwin - Sep 14, 2015

Let me start out by saying I do not like "Jesus Christ Superstar". I think it is a completely overrated show. Repeating the same lyric 50 times does not make a song! So it's more than an annoyance that every few years someone feels the need to resurrect it (pun intended). I mean in the past eight years I've seen it four times. In fact the current production at Seattle Musical Theatre is the third production in four years where they've chosen to set it in a post-apocalyptic world. I can only attribute its constant remounting to religious fervor and a mass familiarity with the source story. So I'm going to try and keep my disdain for the piece in check and focus on the performances. Unfortunately, as good as the performers were vocally, there was a severe lack of depth in these iconic characters plus a bad sound system which didn't aid the performers in getting me through the afternoon.

BWW Reviews:  Village's CABARET Slow and Safe but ThoughtfulBWW Reviews: Village's CABARET Slow and Safe but Thoughtful
by Jay Irwin - May 24, 2015

I have to say that when it comes to Kander and Ebb's "Cabaret" I prefer my Kit Kat Club dirty, my Sally Bowles damaged and my Berlin dangerous. And while the current production at Village Theatre has all of those elements, they're all very safe versions of those elements. And while director Brian Yorkey attempted a very thoughtful telling of the story, often times the pacing was so deliberately slow as to lose any urgency of the moment. (more...)

BWW Reviews: 5th Avenue's CAROUSEL Lacks Emotion, Needs More SnowBWW Reviews: 5th Avenue's CAROUSEL Lacks Emotion, Needs More Snow
by Jay Irwin - Feb 23, 2015

If you read my previous review, Dear Readers, of SMT's production of "Sweet Charity" you'll know that I already had the occasion this weekend of a show where the leading lady just didn't connect for me. Well, that seems to be a trend as the 5th Avenue Theatre's current production of "Carousel" also had a leading lady who was lacking. There's plenty of good things happening in the show but their Julie Jordan (Laura Griffith) came across as emotionless and stone faced making me wonder why or even if she was falling in love.
