FUN HOME is Heading to Bainbridge Performing Arts Photo FUN HOME is Heading to Bainbridge Performing Arts
by Chloe Rabinowitz - Jan 31, 2020

Fun Home traces the coming-of-age of lesbian author Alison Bechdel, from her youth, to her years at Oberlin College, and finally to the present, where Alison, now grown, is struggling to write her own graphic autobiography. Facing the unexpected death of her father, Alison struggles to make sense of the past, particularly her relationship with her father, a man whose temperament and secrets defined her family and her life. A refreshingly honest musical about seeing your parents through grown-up eyes, Fun Home explores the haunting pull of memory and the power it wields in shaping our identities.

BWW Review: Seattle Musical Theatre's Awesome AIDA is Their Strongest Suit! Photo BWW Review: Seattle Musical Theatre's Awesome AIDA is Their Strongest Suit!
by Jay Irwin - Feb 17, 2019

Before any theater company even considers attempting Elton John and Tim Rice's rock musical "Aida", they need to have, at the very least, four things in place. An awesome band to back up the amazing ensemble. A dashing Radames and a larger than life Amneris, both with fantastic pipes of their own, and of course a killer Aida who can handle the powerful, belt your face off in the back-row songs she has to sing throughout. Enter Seattle Musical Theatre who has had a rocky time of it as of late but has been struggling to make a comeback. And with their current production of "Aida" and I'm thrilled to report from that list; check, check, check, and CHECK!!! Now before we move on I must inform you that thanks to Snowmageddon 2019, Seattle Musical Theatre had to cancel their entire opening weekend of this production, and by the time this is up after me seeing it over the second weekend you'll only have one weekend left. Start making plans for seeing it during that weekend while you read the rest of this.

Seattle Musical Theatre has taken on Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice's "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat" for the holidays, that bright and frothy, crowd-pleaser of a tuner. And while for this production they've managed to gather up some stellar talent, that talent sometimes has a hard time getting through the noise, or in most cases, the lack of noise.
