The Broadway Sensation Wicked

Buy Tickets $93 - $193 $93 - $193

A true Broadway sensation, Wicked looks at what happened in the Land of Oz from a very different perspective. Long before Dorothy arrives, another girl is born with emerald-green skin. She’s smart, fiery, misunderstood, and she possesses an extraordinary talent. When she meets a bubbly blonde who is exceptionally popular, their initial rivalry turns into the unlikeliest of friendships … until the world decides to call one “good,” and the other one “wicked.” With a thrilling score that includes the hits “Defying Gravity,” “Popular” and “For Good,” Wicked has been hailed by The New York Times as “the defining musical of the decade.” From the first electrifying note to the final breathtaking moment, the untold true story of the Witches of Oz transfixes audiences with its wildly inventive story. See this acclaimed musical at Seattle’s Paramount Theatre.

Million Dollar Quartet: The Tony-Winning Early Rock Musical

Buy Tickets $34.50 - $72.20 $64 - $89

On December 4, 1956, a twist of fate brought Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins and Elvis Presley to Memphis’ Sun Records. The rock ‘n’ roll musical Million Dollar Quartet was inspired by this legendary recording session — the first and only collaboration between these true legends, each of whom had an undeniable influence on American music. This thrilling production takes you inside the studio with the four major talents who came together to form a red-hot band for one unforgettable night, and features such enduring hits as “Blue Suede Shoes,” “Whole Lotta Shakin’ Goin’ On,” “Great Balls of Fire” and “Hound Dog.” A hit on Broadway, Million Dollar Quartet was nominated for 2010 Tony and Drama Desk Awards. Now it returns to the Village Theatre stage in Issaquah – 12 years after its triumphant premiere.

The Legend of El Dorado

Buy Tickets $25 - $30 $40

When three women made the pact of solidarity on their summer road trip, no one ever expected that they would soon become the most legendary outlaws in the country. The gang of motorcycle riding, man-eating women known as El Dorado were a fearsome trio of renegades redefining what it meant to be a woman on their own terms with no compromise. How El Dorado found themselves out running the law, robbing corner stores at gunpoint, and seducing their unsuspecting victims while in high heels, fishnets, and nail polish are things legends are made of. With an original Can Can soundtrack featuring the vocal stylings of Seattle’s own Brent Amaker, The Legend of El Dorado showcases performances of original choreography performed by the Can Can Dance Company and a delicious Market-fresh menu.

A celebration of the simple beauty of being human, Tiny Beautiful Things is based on Cheryl Strayed’s (Wild) journey as the beloved anonymous advice columnist for Dear Sugar.

At first unsure of herself, Sugar finds a way to weave her own life experiences together with the deep yearning and heartrending questions from her readers. This funny and deeply touching exploration of resilience at the Seattle Repertory Theatre was brilliantly adapted for the stage by Nia Vardalos, the Academy Award-nominated writer of My Big Fat Greek Wedding. Time Out said the play “knocks you down with its avalanche of kindness,” and honestly, who couldn’t use an experience like that in their lives?

You, the audience, will then will define the meaning of each scene after seeing it and come up with a WORD to describe it. All the independent scenes will be combined to create the theme of each night. The theme of the show and the title will only become clear for everyone in the theater…AFTER WORDS.

Maps – 23rd Seattle International Festival of Improv

Buy Tickets $7.50 $15

23rd Seattle International Festival of Improvisation theme is maps, focusing on exploring the purpose and uses of maps. The festival examines maps and mapping, particularly in improvisation. Personal maps showing where we’ve been in our lives, careers, and of course improvisationally. Maps do more than giving us potential direction, more than that they tell us where we are right now, this moment. Maps are not the territory, but rather a guide to a landscape. The landscape can be personal, mental, territorial, narrative, experiential. The map is at it’s most useful while on the journey and not at the point of departure or destination. While on whatever path we are exploring, maps tell us where we are right now, and now, and now… In addition, Unexpected Productions is offering an opportunity for participating improvisers to attend workshops with master teachers. Past festival teachers have included Sheila Daniels, Marc Weinblatt, Keith Johnstone, Avery Schreiber, Rachel Rosenthal, Ruth Zaporah, Enrique Pardo, Charna Halpern, Steve Nachmanovitch, Lisa Kron, Per Brahe, Jeff Tipp, and Fran Kao. The Seattle International Festival of Improvisation brings groups of improvisers from all over the world to share, collaborate, and exchange improvisational formats with each other in an environment of exploration and educational. Participants learn formats from other improvisers, then return home to share what they learned with their improv troupes. There are many opportunities to perform, learn and improve skills, and attend special events. This year’s Festival will feature improvisers from Austria, Australia, Canada, Finland, Great Britain, Mexico, Sweden, Switzerland and the United States. Wednesday Trios 8:30 6/26The improvisers will work in playful groups of three. There is magic in threes, especially when they are improv artists from around the globe.

Café Nordo is proud to present The Champagne Widow at Nordo’s Culinarium in historic Pioneer Square. Written by Opal Peachey, composed by Annastasia Workman and directed by Billie Wildrick (Annie, The 5th Avenue), The Champagne Widow will be set in the underground caves of France, where Champagne’s most luxurious bottles of bubbles come to life and sing the stories of the women who made them famous. “Men did not write women’s history and women did not write women’s history. The stories of the widows (or Veuves in French) who made Champagne into the luxury brand it is today are disappearing in the sands of the hour glass,” said playwright and lead performer Opal Peachey. The Champagne Widow will tell the unsung stories of businesswomen Barbe Nicole Clicquot Ponsardin, Louise Pommery, Mathilde Laurent-Perrier and Lily Bollinger. Café Nordo integrates food, drink and theater into a multi-sensory audience experience and The Champagne Widow will feature a four-course meal inspired by the story of Champagne, included in the ticket price. Available for purchase will be a “Flight of Widows” with four glasses of Champagne, from the houses of Veuve Clicquot, Pommery, Laurent-Perrier and Bollinger. To bring the intersectional feminist message of the production home, Nordo will also offer a “Flight of Women in Wine Today” featuring wines from estates where women of diverse backgrounds hold the CEO title in 2019.

Noel Coward’s zany comedy, Hay Fever, had audiences laughing in 1924 when it first took the Tacoma Little Theatre stage! Hoping for a quiet weekend in the country with some guests, David Bliss, a novelist and his wife Judith, a retired actress, find that an impossible dream when their high-spirited children, Simon and Sorel, appear with guests of their own. A houseful of drama waits to be ignited as misunderstandings and tempers flare. With Judith’s new flame and David’s newest literary “inspiration” keeping company as the children follow suit, the Bliss family lives up to its name as the “quiet weekend” comes to an exhausting and hilarious finale worthy of Feydeau.

When the Little Sisters of Hoboken discover that their cook, Sister Julia, Child of God, has accidentally poisoned 52 of the sisters, they are in dire need of funds for the burials. The sisters decide that the best way to raise the money is to put on a variety show, so they take over the school auditorium, which is currently set up for the eighth-grade production of Grease. Here we meet Reverend Mother Regina, a former circus performer; Sister Mary Hubert, the Mistress of Novices; a streetwise nun from Brooklyn named Sister Robert Anne; Sister Mary Leo, a novice who is a wannabe ballerina; and the delightfully wacky Sister Mary Amnesia, the nun who lost her memory when a crucifix fell on her head.

Jacqui Naylor is not an easy artist to categorize. She is as comfortable in the world of singer-songwriters as she is with jazz improvisers. Naylor is jazz-friendly, but far from a rigid purist, bringing a long list of influences to her work, ranging from Billie Holiday, June Christy and Nina Simone to Tracy Chapman, Natalie Merchant, Carole King and Sheryl Crow. During her live performances, Naylor has no problem singing smoky jazz one minute and folk-rock or adult alternative the next — and there are times when she blurs the line between the two. Experience this enigmatic performer at The Triple Door in Seattle.
