Seattle Public Theater to Present THE BEST CHRISTMAS PAGEANT EVERSeattle Public Theater to Present THE BEST CHRISTMAS PAGEANT EVER
by BWW News Desk (Seattle)

(10/31/2014) - For the fourteenth year in a row, Seattle Public Theater (SPT) welcomes back the horrible and hilarious Herdman family for another assault on our seasonal sensibilities in Barbara Robinson's The Best Christmas Pageant Ever directed by Emily Purington.


BWW Reviews: Pony World's OR, THE WHALE Doesn't EngageBWW Reviews: Pony World's OR, THE WHALE Doesn't Engage
by Jay Irwin (Seattle)

(10/31/2014) - You're having a nightmare where you're taking a literature class examining "Moby Dick", it's discussion day and you haven't read the book. That's what it felt like watching Pony World Theatre Company's new production of "Or, The Whale". If there were correlations between the play and the Melville classic as advertised they were completely lost on me. So without all that foreknowledge (which their press release said was not necessary) all I got what a disjointed and drawn out look at several people's woes that ultimately had no real point.

by BWW News Desk (Seattle)

(10/28/2014) - In a world where everything is due yesterday, creativity and commerce collide and personalities clash in a modern day take on a classic coming-of-age story. Set within the halls of a storied ad agency and inspired and based on real people and events, The Fierce Urgency of Now exposes the precarious nature of power and the inner questions that haunt us all using a delicate balance of wit, verve, and humor.

The evening closes with a new story randomly drawn from Jennifer's kooky family album of Jasper Jewels.


BWW Reviews: ArtsWest's DOGFIGHT Manages Some Touching MomentsBWW Reviews: ArtsWest's DOGFIGHT Manages Some Touching Moments
by Jay Irwin (Seattle)

(10/27/2014) - One of the most exciting and promising new musicals to come out of New York in the last few years for me has to be 'Dogfight'. This adaptation of the little known film from up and coming composers Benj Pasek and Justin Paul and writer Peter Duchan showed off that musical theater still has quite a vibrant heartbeat. So when I heard that ArtsWest was mounting this recent Lucille Lortel Award winner I was quite excited. And while there are a few muddled choices in the current production, the show elicits tons of heart and some truly touching moments especially from Seattle newbie Devon Busswood, but we'll get to more on her in a minute.


BWW Reviews: Seattle Shakes Brings Fresh and Exhilarating Take on TWELFTH NIGHTBWW Reviews: Seattle Shakes Brings Fresh and Exhilarating Take on TWELFTH NIGHT
by Jay Irwin (Seattle)

(10/27/2014) - How many times have we all seen "Twelfth Night"? It is one of Shakespeare's most accessible and arguably one of his best plays and therefore one of his most often trotted out pieces. Even Seattle Shakespeare Company admits this current production is the fifth time they've done it in their 24 year history. So I'll admit to a less than enthusiastic attitude when I was off to see it. I mean, what can they do with "Twelfth Night" really? Well, apparently, they can fill it with a stupendous cast, direct it with a kind of 1920's yet otherworldly vibe, liven up all the comedy and flourish it with some hauntingly melancholy original music and turn it into a feast for the senses making this war horse once again a glittering show pony.
