I hate the idea of missing plays, but sometimes life, or exhaustion because of/with life gets in the way of getting out and seeing something. Also, sometimes my complete lack of money gets in the way. I make enough to live on with a pretty good amount of fun money left over, but I’ve had a lot of extra bills lately, particularly because of the movement class (which is finally paid off! Yay!). So, unfortunately, I’ve missed quite a few shows in the past two months, shows which I’m sure were wonderful.
So, I would like to apologize to:
“Wyrd Sisters” at Open Circle
Greenstage’s “As You Like It”
“Fuddy Meers” at Seattle Public (one of my favorite plays, written for a theatre back in my hometown, too)
“Kindred Spirits” at ReAct
“The Laramie Project” from Strawberry Theatre Workshop (I also missed their production of Brecht’s Galileo like, three years ago, and that STILL bums me out)
“Zanna, Don’t!” from Contemporary Classics (I heard it was hilarious)
“An Adult Evening of Shel Silverstein” over at Theater Schmeater
“Doubt” at Gold From Straw (which is in Tacoma, but I had a friend in it)
“Keefee’s House of Cards” at Printer’s Devil Theatre (also heard it was hilarious)
“Nietzsche! The Musical” improv show at Unexpected Productions (with a title like that, how dare I miss it?)
“Sassy! A 90’s Cabaret Tribute” from Live Girls! Theatre (which I technically haven’t missed yet, but since I have my movement class that night, I will)
“An Inconvenient Squirrel” by Theater Scheater (today’s the last day, and it’s raining, and it’s outdoor theatre)
There’s always so much small, fringe performance going on in Seattle it astounds me. Not only are there lots and lots of plays, there’s also dance and performance art and staged readings and improv. I’ve missed more in the past month and a half than I have the rest of this year, but I’m trying to get back on the ball.
