Angry Housewives

Angry Housewives
Book by A.M. Collins
Music and Lyrics by Chad Henry
April 23 – May 24

with additional performances May 28-31, Thursday – Saturday at 7:30pm and Sunday at 3:00pm

The Angry Housewives are baaaaaccckkk!! Bored with their everyday mediocre existence and tired of the men in their lives, our four heroines get angry and form a punk-rock band to win some much needed cash in a local contest. Beginning with the first licks, this satirical twist on 1980’s feminism turns into a feverishly-rompy punk-rock musical. Outrageous and irresistible, first produced in 1983 by the creative team of Seattleites Chad Henry and A.M. Collins, Angry Housewives lays claim to the longest sold out run of a musical in Seattle history.

These gals will have you Eating Your $%# Cornflakes!

Chinglish

Mar 05 – Mar 29 2015

Chinglish
By David Henry Hwang
March 5 – March 29, 2015
Seattle Premiere

This laugh-out-loud comedy by the much celebrated Tony-Award winning playwright David Henry Hwang (M. Butterfly), merrily spews forth mutilated and mangled idioms, slang and pronunciations, against the backdrop of stranger-in-a-strange-land tensions. Our protagonist, a naïve American business man, finds himself in China trying to sell a Cultural Minister signs with proper English translations, all the while making his own blunders not only in language, but in cultural etiquette, sex, and in searching for the best guanxi!

By Amy Herzog
January 22 – February 15, 2015
Northwest Premiere, 2012 Obie Award Winner, 2012 New York Times Outstanding Playwright Award, 2013 Pulitzer-Prize nominee

A story of communication, unspoken bonds, and tenderness with jagged edges, 4000 Miles brings together a 21 year old grandson and his 91 year old feisty, fiercely independent grandmother. Through their days spent together in her New York apartment, we realize that Leo is not there to comfort his grandma during her lonely years, but instead he is the one in need of her straight-forward no-nonsense brand of love. That is…. when she has her teeth in and her hearing aid turned on.

Book by David Church and Jim Webber
Music and Lyrics by Joe Patrick Ward

Making spirits bright this holiday season is none other than Judy Garland, reveling in all things old Hollywood glam!

“My goodness, I’m back home again. I’ve missed you all so much!”

With spiked grog in hand, Judy welcomes her baggage-ridden celebrity stars – Bing Crosby, Liberace, Ethel Merman, Joan Crawford, Lillian Hellman, VP Richard Nixon, Punch, and a special dark guest – to her 1959 TV Christmas Special. Stylized zany camp is the wrappings on this gift of clever satire, endearing fun and wicked toe-tapping music!
