Joe McDermott To Lead Post-play Discussion Following 6/23 Performance of SORRYJoe McDermott To Lead Post-play Discussion Following 6/23 Performance of SORRY
by BWW News Desk - Jun 11, 2016

Joe McDermott, King County Council member and candidate for Congress, will lead a post-play discussion immediately following the Thursday, June 23, performance of Sorry. Sorry, by Richard Nelson, is a smart, funny and timely play that asks how we make the right choices, both at home and in the larger political world. In an election season marked with so much anger and shouting, Sorry offers instead a "lovely . . . feeling of shared citizenship,' (New York Times) where one family, trying to make the right choice in their own difficult decision, still manage, with humor and grace, to talk to one another using their 'inside voices.' Joe McDerrmott's participation makes tangible this intimate, vital connection between the personal and the political, the local and the national. (more...)

ESP Stages WHEN WE ARE MARRIED by J. B. Priestley TodayESP Stages WHEN WE ARE MARRIED by J. B. Priestley Today
by BWW News Desk - Dec 9, 2013

J. B. Priestley's 1938 farcical comedy, set in 1908, is about three couples who married on the same day in the same church, who learn on their twenty-fifth anniversaries that they aren't legally married at all, sending them into a tizzy of spousal re-evaluation. The play is full of funny lines, and is a first-rate screwball comedy - but this hilarious Yorkshire farce has more going on in it than this premise would indicate, because, after all, this is a play by J. B. Priestley! (more...)

by BWW News Desk - Sep 1, 2013

ESP comes around the curve and into summer's final stretch with Pinero's 1887 horse-racing farce, Dandy Dick! With two impetuous daughters both on the brink of matrimony,the Very Reverend Augustin Jedd is in need of a bit of dowry enhancement... So, even though he's a staunch disapprover of the racing game, when his sometime-do-well sisterGeorgiana Tidd, the 'daisy of the turf,' shows up with a supposedly sure thing -the horse of the play's title - the Very Reverend gets very interested, and he and his whole household go delightfully and British-ly bonkers!

by Jay Irwin - Aug 13, 2013

Wagner's 'Ring' is back in town at Seattle Opera. Some say for the last time (at least as it is now) as Speight Jenkins is stepping down from the organization. So it's only fitting that the abridged twangy retelling the cycle, 'Das Barbecu' make it's way back again. But unlike the productions in the past (like the most recent at ACT) this one is a bit trimmed down into a concert version (music in hand). But not to worry as the three night only run is still filled with hilarity and heart as the performers shine like some magic gold. (more...)
