MCT's Executive Director, Michael McGill, has announced the final decision to cancel the Missoula Community Theatre's Matilda. The production was previously scheduled for this past spring as the final show of the 2019-2020 season but was postponed until October 2020 due to Covid-19. The hope was for it to be produced as originally intended---with a cast and crew of nearly 50 children and adult volunteers, playing to full houses of 300 patrons for a three-week run.

What about an entire series of pictures that is set to music?  Well, picture this, a professional musical theatre company in South Bend producing a movie musical that's all about photography. If this unique approach to see theatre sounds too good to be true, don't worry, it's definitely true.

Oh my! What a year! We've seen bad-ass gospel singers, lost Jewish plays, mythical towns of excretion and even an octopus wrestler or two. No, those aren't allusions to the crazy theater going on in Washington D.C. but the crazy wonderful theater going on right here in the Seattle area. It was tough coming up with just one winner (or even just a few Honorable Mentions) but I managed to do it a?? for the most part. Plus, some shows that more of you should have seen. (Yes, that's me nagging you all, Dear Readers, to check out more of the smaller or obscure theaters around here.) But what it all comes down to is, we're blessed here in the Northwest with an over-abundance of theatrical riches and I'm so fortunate to be able to share some of my favorites of the year with you with the BWW 2019 Seattle Critic's Choice Awards (Jay's Picks). So, let's get started, shall we?
