SEATTLE, WA - Pacific Northwest Ballet's Swan Lake, choreographed by Founding Artistic Director Kent Stowell, returns to the McCaw Hall stage as the fifth offering of PNB's 2014-15 season.

BWW Reviews: BLOOD AND GIFTS at Woolfe Street PlayhouseBWW Reviews: BLOOD AND GIFTS at Woolfe Street Playhouse
by haydn haring - Mar 17, 2015

I don't usually enjoy sitting through bleak plays. I prefer to be uplifted by the end. Woolfe Street Playhouse's production of BLOOD AND GIFTS by JT Rogers is not uplifting, but somehow kept me glued in my seat and somberly invested for its duration. A violently charged drama, the story takes place during the conflict over Afghanistan in the 1980's, involving the US, Great Britain, Soviet Russia, Pakistan and Iran. Seeing a story of such political relevance acted out live, offered a truly chilling experience, like seeing events on the news happening in real time. (more...)

It's rather like creating a two hour 'close-up' magic trick - you can't hit any false notes - either in the slight of hand of the effects, or in the honesty of the performances.The audience will be right there for everything.
