BWW Reviews: More of the Same Brilliance with Rep's THE GREAT SOCIETYBWW Reviews: More of the Same Brilliance with Rep's THE GREAT SOCIETY
by Jay Irwin - Dec 11, 2014

Sometimes a bit of greatness, when combined with an equally great companion can form something so amazing that they surpass the heights to which they've already achieved. Such is the case with Tony Kushner's "Angels in America", the cycle of plays from August Wilson and, in my opinion, even Tarantino's "Kill Bill" saga. Well now we can add another set to the group as the Seattle Rep is now presenting the companion piece to the Robert Schenkkan's LBJ bio-play "All the Way" with the equally stunning "The Great Society". And if the first one grabbed you like it did me, then this one will only serve to extend that wild ride but in a very different way. (more...)

BWW Reviews: THE VAUDEVILLIANS Pump Up Racy Glamour at Seattle RepBWW Reviews: THE VAUDEVILLIANS Pump Up Racy Glamour at Seattle Rep
by Jay Irwin - Oct 9, 2014

"The Vaudevillians" is not an act that you'd expect to see at the Seattle Rep but then they've never really played it safe. But catching an act that I remember seeing at Balagan's "Smorgasbord" nights back when they were in the basement of the noodle house now strutting around the stage at the Rep is a bit odd but just shows how far this duo has come. From late night cabaret to the toast of Off-Broadway, "The Vaudevillians" have matured into a solidly hilarious evening that spotlights two very gifted performers. (more...)
