Photo Flash: The Merchant of Venice At Seattle Center

Center House Theatre at Seattle Center, Center House Lower Level- When the markets are hot, Venice is a glamorous and high-living city. Fortunes are made in an instant and lost in a heartbeat. After striking a lethal bargain with the moneylender Shylock, Antonio faces the knife when his income is lost at sea. He must now rely upon a resourceful heiress-turned-lawyer, Portia, to prevent the deadly disaster. In a thrilling courtroom conclusion, the disguised young woman swings into action in one of Shakespeare's most popular and controversial plays.

Review: THIS BITTER EARTH at Seattle Public Theater Photo
THIS BITTER EARTH is a story of troubles: a troubled time, troubles in a relationship, but mostly trouble in seeing outside of one’s own perspective. In our modern world where issues of social justice dominate the headlines, our actions and reactions are as varied as the individuals that make up our melting pot of society. At times it feels like we are all stewing in the pot rather than melting into one people, one community. THIS BITTER EARTH deals with two opposite reactions to the divisiveness of our world and how they struggle to understand each other. The show is full of tough conversations, powerful moments, quiet nudges, and just enough hope to carry us through.What did our critic think of THIS BITTER EARTH at Seattle Public Theater?

Review: A WOMAN OF NO IMPORTANCE at Taproot Theatre Photo

A thinking man’s comedy, Wilde imbues this work with witty banter while challenging society’s norms. The clips along with a steady stream of laughs punctuated by occasions of loud guffaws and eye-popping truths. You will be charmed. You will be delighted. You will be entertained.
