BWW Reviews: The Return of Hilarity with Theatre22's LIVE! FROM THE LAST NIGHT OF MY LIFEBWW Reviews: The Return of Hilarity with Theatre22's LIVE! FROM THE LAST NIGHT OF MY LIFE
by Jay Irwin (Seattle)

(3/30/2015) - Let's set the way back machine to September 2011 and we'll visit a time when Theatre Schmeater's production of a new play from Wayne Rawley kind of took Seattle by storm. It sold out houses and won several local awards. Now 3 years later and Theatre22 has tried to recreate the magic by remounting the show with the same cast and much of the same crew. And Doug Sample (Ryan Higgins) and the rest of the cast may look a bit older but they're also more seasoned and focused performers as they manage to not only rediscover much of that magic but in some ways surpass it.


BWW Reviews: Contini's Ladies Make Showtunes' NINE SublimeBWW Reviews: Contini's Ladies Make Showtunes' NINE Sublime
by Jay Irwin (Seattle)

(3/30/2015) - I've never quite understood why Maury Yeston and Arthur Kopit's "Nine" is so under produced regionally. It's fun, flirty and sexy with some of the most stunningly beautiful songs that unfortunately too few are familiar with. It could be that in order to produce it correctly you need one killer ensemble of women (and Guido of course) who can handle the piece. Well, as is their way, Showtunes Theatre Company has taken this underdone gem and dusted it off and thankfully found that stellar ensemble to tackle it in their current concert version. Too bad it's only for two performances.

The first play to kick off ACT's 50th Anniversary harkens back to our inaugural 1965 season when Cat on a Hot Tin Roof had its Seattle Premiere directed by ACT founder Gregory A. Falls.


BWW Reviews: Abba-licious Fun at MAMMA MIA! at the ParamountBWW Reviews: Abba-licious Fun at MAMMA MIA! at the Paramount
by Jay Irwin (Seattle)

(3/25/2015) - It has no huge morally important message to deliver. It won't be stopping wars or fixing societal unrest. But what "Mamma Mia!", currently playing at the Paramount Theatre, does do and has always done is to be fun. A fluffy, bubblegum, rockin' good time and seriously that's enough.

BWW Reviews: Hard Hitting WE ARE PROUD  from Pony World TheatreBWW Reviews: Hard Hitting WE ARE PROUD from Pony World Theatre
by Jay Irwin (Seattle)

(3/24/2015) - The current production from Pony World Theatre may not be everyone's cup of tea. I mean it's already got a few things that may make people shy away. One of the longest titles in theatrical history to start, We Are Proud to Present a Presentation About the Herero of Namibia, Formerly Known as Southwest Africa, From the German Sudwestafrika, Between the Years 1884-1915 by Jackie Sibblies Drury. Or how about that it's about a little known genocide? In fact I wasn't sure how I was feeling about it as it tended toward a little preachy and esoteric. But this odd and very hard hitting play ended up having so much going for it, not the least of which was it's cast, that it amounted to quite a moving experience.

by Jay Irwin (Seattle)

(3/23/2015) - A serial killer being hunted by the police sounds like ripe fodder for a musical comedy, right? No? Well then you need to expand your perception and get out to Village Theatre to catch their current production of "No Way to Treat a Lady" which not only manages to amuse while it horrifies but also boasts a killer ensemble each of whom slays their roles.


BWW Reviews: Giddy Comedy Gold in Seattle Shakes' TARTUFFEBWW Reviews: Giddy Comedy Gold in Seattle Shakes' TARTUFFE
by Jay Irwin (Seattle)

(3/23/2015) - Moliere's "Tartuffe" is already a classic drink from the comedy well from which many have drawn. But what director Makaela Pollock and the folks at Seattle Shakespeare Company have done with their current production is to take that comedy and reinvigorated it with a kind of screwball comedy style making the already funny downright giddy hilarity.


BWW Reviews: Theater Schmeater's THE MOST DESERVING Isn'tBWW Reviews: Theater Schmeater's THE MOST DESERVING Isn't
by Jay Irwin (Seattle)

(3/23/2015) - How do you decide what is deserving to be considered as art both monetarily and sociologically? Yes, it's all very subjective and depending on the person but for me, especially with theater, it needs to convey some sort of message or at least an engaging story. Unfortunately the current production of "The Most Deserving" at Theater Schmeater missed the mark in those regards as it failed to engage me on a number of levels and came across more as watching a bland Lifetime Original movie mixed with the Government Access Channel.
