When the producers of Collaborative Artists Ensemble were searching for their next play, they were looking for something that explored different aspects of mother/daughter relationships, and they found one that added the element of dementia to the complexities of the dynamic. But the deciding factor, said Managing Director Steve Jarrard, was the beauty of the writing in a script they couldn't put down.

The 5th Avenue Theatre and KUOW Public Radio program are proud to announce a pilot collaboration of their education programs, Rising Star Project and RadioActive, respectively, called RadioActive Musicals. This remarkable collaboration brings together two like-minded Seattle organizations with successful arts education programming that celebrates and amplifies youth voices. Both The 5th and KUOW employ a cognitive apprenticeship model to teach, mentor, and empower local teens in two unique, compelling storytelling art forms. These programs help fill the gap created by Washington's chronic underfunding of the arts, particularly for youth who have limited access to arts education and opportunities, including those from groups historically impacted by sexism, racism, colonization, homophobia, and other forms of oppression.

John Kander and Fred Ebb's a?oeCabareta?? is a bit of a perplexing show for me. Perplexing in that it's done quite often, and it shouldn't be. It should only be done if you can do justice to the story. With a book by Joe Masteroff and based on the play by John Van Druten and stories by Christopher Isherwood, the themes in the play are complex and dark with a bite underlying the sweetness and fun. And when combined with Kander and Ebb's songs which tell stories all on their own, the show has promise to be a gut punch. Unfortunately, the current production from the Seattle Gilbert & Sullivan Society, while having some wonderful voices, continually misses the mark on the story making the show an uneven revue of fun numbers but no depth.

RAGTIME is a musical that is as relevant now as it was in 1998 when it premiered and the production currently on at PlayMakers Repertory Company makes that abundantly clear. While the show might be set in the state of New York in 1906, it makes statements about immigration, race relations, corrupt justice, and women's rights that continue to ring true today. Director Zi Alikhan stages the show as you've never seen before, cutting away the period clothing and elaborate setting to focus on its brilliant music and lyrics and the poignant themes it explores. The new 360 degree theatre layout puts the audience firmly into the action, letting them get even closer to the characters than in a normal show.
