UNCLE VANYA
Akropolis Performance Lab
3/21-4/5/2014
Akropolis Performance Lab (APL) presents Anton Chekhov's Uncle Vanya, in the world premiere of a new translation by Zhenya Lavy, March 21 through April 5, at the historic Garden House on Beacon Hill. Residents of a country estate find their lives upended when their ailing, estranged patriarch and his beguiling, young wife retire from the city to live among them. Provoked by the interlopers' entitlement and malaise, they confront disillusionment, environmental decay, unrequited love, and deferred dreams. Haunted by the past, present, and future, these unhappy souls wait, talk, drink, philosophize, and reach-with increasing desperation-for illusory fulfillment. Simultaneously tragic and comic, sympathetic and absurd, Uncle Vanya probes at timeless, universal questions of the human soul to reveal what is difficult and true. As in all APL productions, the text, song, and action are inextricably linked. Only at the union of these elements is the story fully manifest. Striking physicality and saturated, complex vocal music are hallmarks of any APL event. Directed by Joseph Lavy, and featuring the rich a cappella polyphony of Russian folk music devised and directed by Zhenya Lavy, Uncle Vanya reasserts APL's powerful artistic range. Akropolis Performance Lab was founded in Seattle in 2000 and is co-artistic directed by Joseph and Zhenya Lavy. The company's original work has included mainstage productions of an adaptation of Macbeth, Song of Songs, Jeanne The Maid: A Trial And Execution Of Jeanne D'Arc, and their highly acclaimed Dream of a Ridiculous Man-which was remounted for the 2005 national TCG conference and also was featured in The Stage magazine (Moscow, Russia). The company presented Week 2 of the world premiere of Suzan-Lori Parks' 365 Days / 365 Plays, and their 2006 adaptation of Seneca's Oedipus was a critical and popular success. For the last year, APL has run an intimate Salon Series for small, invited audiences. WHAT: Uncle Vanya by Anton Chekhov (translated by Zhenya Lavy?)

The Redmond Academy of Theatre Arts
4/3-4/5/2014
If you thought you knew the story of 'The Princess and The Pea,' you may be in for a walloping surprise! Did you know, for instance, that Princess Winnifred actually swam the moat to reach Prince Dauntless the Drab? Or that Lady Larken's love for Sir Harry provided a rather compelling reason that she reach the bridal altar post haste? Or that, in fact, it wasn't the pea at all that caused the princess a sleepless night? Carried on a wave of wonderful songs, by turns hilarious and raucous, romantic and melodic, this rollicking spin on the familiar classic of royal courtship and comeuppance provides for some side-splitting shenanigans. Chances are you'll never look at fairy tales quite the same way again.Music by Mary Rodgers; Book by Jay Thompson & Dean Fuller & Marshall Barer; Lyrics by Marshall Barer

THE LAST FIVE YEARS is a contemporary song-cycle musical that ingeniously chronicles the five year life of a marriage, from meeting to break-up... or from break-up to meeting, depending on how you look at it. Written by Jason Robert Brown (PARADE, SONGS FOR A NEW WORLD), THE LAST FIVE YEARS is an intensely personal look at the relationship between a writer and an actress told from both points of view. This intimate musical is perfect for small theatre companies and black box venues. With its two-person cast, acting stamina is a must.

Now Playing Onstage in Seattle - Week of 3/30/2014 LES MISERABLES
OLYMPIA CHORAL SOCIETY
4/3-4/6/2014
This international smash-hit may be the most popular musical in the world. In 19th century France, Jean Valjean is released from 19 years of unjust imprisonment, but finds nothing in store for him but mistrust and mistreatment. He breaks his parole in hopes of starting a new life, initiating a life-long struggle for redemption as he is relentlessly pursued by police inspector Javert, who refuses to believe Valjean can change his ways. Finally, during the Paris student uprising of 1832, Javert must confront his ideals after Valjean spares his life and saves that of the student revolutionary who has captured the heart of Valjean's adopted daughter. His world-view shattered, Javert commits suicide, and Valjean at last attains the peace he has sought for so long.Epic, grand and uplifting, LES MISÉRABLES packs an emotional wallop that has thrilled audiences all over the world. The sung-through pop opera is ideal for a cast of exceptional singers and overflows with melodies that are already standards. A spectacle on Broadway and in London, LES MISÉRABLES is equally effective with a minimal set; it is its powerful affirmation of the human spirit that has made LES MISÉRABLES a popular masterpiece.

This celebration of the mating game takes on the truths and myths behind that contemporary conundrum know as 'the relationship.'

The seminal event in American history blazes to vivid life in this most unconventional of Broadway hits. 1776 puts a human face on the pages of history as we see the men behind the national icons: proud, frightened, uncertain, irritable, charming, often petty and ultimately noble figures determined to do the right thing for a fledgling nation.It's the summer of 1776, and the nation is ready to declare independence...if only our founding fathers can agree to do it! 1776 follows John Adams of Massachusetts, Benjamin Franklin of Pennsylvania, and Richard Henry Lee and Thomas Jefferson of Virginia as they attempt to convince the members of the second Continental Congress to vote for independence from the shackles of the British monarchy by signing the Declaration of Independence.1776 is a funny, insightful, and compelling drama with a striking score and legendary book. It is an extremely flexible show that can be performed with characters as written or as a concert version  1776 STAGED CONCERT VERSIONThe MTI Marquee provides a number of articles on unique staging and casting ideas for 1776 in order to make the show more produce-able in your theatre while remaining engaging to audience members.  Of particular note is a Staged Concert Version of the show which allows for blind casting and minimal costumes.

A CONTEMPORARY THEATRE
3/8-6/15/2014
A down-and out skid row floral assistant becomes an overnight sensation when he discovers an exotic plant with a mysterious craving for fresh blood. Soon "Audrey II" grows into an ill-tempered, foul-mouthed, R&B-singing carnivore who offers him fame and fortune in exchange for feeding its growing appetite, finally revealing itself to be an alien creature poised for global domination! One of the longest-running Off-Broadway shows of all time, this affectionate spoof of 1950s sci-fi movies has become a household name, thanks to a highly successful film version and a score by the songwriting team of Howard Ashman and Alan Menken, who redefined the animated musical film with Disney's The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast and Aladdin. Charming, tuneful and hilarious, with tongue firmly planted in cheek, LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS never fails to entertain. A small cast, band and unit set make the other aspects of production a snap.
