Theater night in Seattle October 2013


I am trying to find a (live) theater performance (musical, drama, comedy) in Seattle during my stay (10/13-10/16/2013). Went on theatermania.com, but have not found much other than improv/ comedy. Please, help!

Thank you!

Yeah a lot of the fall seasons will be starting up. However some yearly calendars start in January and end in August and they are off during the fall into January.

The Servant of Two Masters by Yale Rep at Seattle Rep looks fun:

Yale Repertory Theatre's production of



by Carlo Goldoni, adapted by Constance Congdon

from a translation by Christina Sibul

SEPT. 27—OCT. 20, 2013

Comedy classic. Wily servant Truffaldino attempts to serve two masters in the hope of double wages and double dinners – with comical results in this ensemble production full of laughs,

Here is the Description for Sugar Daddies at Act

October 4 - November 3, 2013

Directed by Alan Ayckbourn

Allen Theatre | View Seating Chart

ACT welcomes the great Sir Alan Ayckbourn to direct this American premiere of his 2003 “comedy of dark intentions,” about a naïve young student who rescues an old man dressed as Father Christmas from a hit-and-run driver and brings him back to the London flat she shares with her sister. As he showers her with gifts in a manner beyond polite gratitude and she accepts them in a way that begins to alter her personality, they embark on a dangerously Faustian game of mutual fantasy. They play roles in which no act can be taken at face value, no one is quite who they seem, and no good deed goes entirely unpunished.

The Balagan is showing "Carrie the Musical" (this will be at the Moore in conjunction with Seattle Theater Group 10/13 will be the only day that will work)

Music by Michael Gore; Lyrics by Dean Pitchford

Book by Lawrence Dean Cohen based on the movie by Stephen King

The gripping tale of an awkward teen outcast with a powerful gift

In her small new england coastal town Carrie White is a misfit. At school, she's bullied by the popular crowd. At home she's at the mercy of her loving yet cruelly over-protective mother. But Carrie has just discovered that she's got a special power - the power to move things with her mind. And when a cruel prank at the prom pushes Carrie over the edge, she harnesses that power to exact a ruinous revenge.



Seattle Public Theater at the Bathhouse is putting on "Broke-ology"

Opening the season is Nathan Louis Jackson’s Broke-ology. Rich in spirit, poor in cash, William King wants his sons to have a better life than he did.

Running September 26th to October 20th, this West Coast Premiere is directed by Valerie Curtis-Newton and produced in partnership with The Hansberry Project.

Seattle Shakespeare Theater is starting October 23 and the Intiman's excellent theater festival ends at the end of September.

However On the Boards is putting on Heather Kravas "The Quartet." The only date that will work for you would be the 13th.



Comprised of a kaleidoscopic ballet, a mutating folk dance and a titillating cheer, the quartet examines the politics of societal fidelity. Where is the end of us and the beginning of them? How do we come close from far away? Subsumed by arduous tasks, the performers here are creators of distorted traditions. Individuals interrelating, they are bodies becoming a body.

the quartet is a cult, an essence, a machine, a snowflake, a Utopia and a quotation mark.

Heather Kravas is a choreographer and performer based in Seattle, NYC and Montesquieu-Volvestre (France). During her time in this city she co-founded the d9 dance collective and worked alongside artists Maureen Whiting, Amii LeGendre, Karn Junkinsmith and Jack Magai. Her work has been presented nationally by P.S.122, the Kitchen, Dance Theater Workshop, Movement Research and Danspace Project as well as internationally. As a performer, she works with DD Dorviller's human future dance corps and was recently a re-performer in MoMA’s retrospective, Marina Abramovic: The Artist is Present.

Co-commissioned by On the Boards, Fusebox Festival, Performance Space 122 and the National Performance Network. the quartet was supported through On the Boards' Performance Production Program


The Paramount is putting on "The Wizard of Oz" a new production by Andrew Lloyd Webber

Andrew Lloyd Webber’s new production of The Wizard of Oz is an enchanting adaptation of the all-time classic, totally reconceived for the stage by the award-winning creative team that recently delighted London and Toronto audiences with the revival of The Sound of Music.

Developed from the ever popular MGM screenplay, this new production contains all the beloved songs from the Oscar®-winning movie score, all the favorite characters and iconic moments, plus a few surprises along the way, including new songs by Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber.


In Fremont the West of Lenin theater is putting on 5th of July in October (Thur-Sat. 10/4-10/26*)

*I think this means that you will miss this one but I thought I would mention it..

At a sprawling farmhouse in rural Missouri, Ken, a legless Vietnam veteran, and his lover, Jed, welcome a disparate group of colorful old friends and family who came of age in the sixties and separated as the decade drew to a close. As they reminisce, revealing lost dreams and buried resentments, they expose the shattered hopes of their college days at Berkeley and the unhealed trauma of the Vietnam War. At once poignant and marvelously funny, 5th of July is a compassionate portrait of a generation that is trying to transcend the disillusionment of the seventies, learn what can be salvaged from the past, and find the courage to begin anew. Sharp and funny and, in the final essence, deeply revealing of lost hopes and dreams and of the bitterness that must be fought back if one is to perceive the good that life can offer.

The same stage is doing "Truth or Fiction? Who cares! (when it’s a great story)"

October 15, 2013 - September 15, 2013

Featuring new stories by Bret Fetzer, Tania Katan, Jason Kovacs, Suzanne Morrison and David Schmader.


This may be a bit out of the way for you but up in North Seattle Green Stage is putting on The Bacchae by Euripedes, Directed by Theresa Truman. This group does the Summer Shakespeare in the Park but has for a couple years been doing inside pre-Halloween over the top blood soaked renditions of some of the more violent classical theater pieces-- what they call Hard Bard. They were doing some crowd sourced fundraising but I am assuming this is still going on.
