Peter Antoniou-Psychic Comedian

Psychic Comedian, is it real?

A would-be psychic once advertised herself as an “intuitive artist,” I would tweak that description for Peter Antoniou and call him an intuitive genius. His intriguing act opened this past week at Theatre off Jackson in the International District, beguiling even the most cynical of observers (like ME!)

Despite Excellence of Acting Ensemble Hamlet Fails at Seattle Shakes

The extraordinary collaboration of Miles Davis and John Coltrane yielded treasures of 20th century jazz. Their mastery left us tapestries of music storytelling, requiring close, imaginative listening. The works of Wm. Shakespeare, not quite four centuries prior, also need this kind of thoughtful listening. The structure of the language, seemingly odd and impenetrable at first, needs patience, and for the listener to “lean in” to the worlds the words evoke. The Great Works of Miles/’Trane and the Works of Shakespeare–in the mouths of strong players–will reward the audience who is willing to be an active listener.

Preview-Europe Seattle Premiere

U.S. Premiere of Hit British Play

Thalia’s Umbrella was two days away from opening EUROPE in March of 2020 when, like so many other theaters, Thalia canceled all performances of the US premiere of Europe, by Scottish playwright David Greig. Two refugees arrive at a train station in a small border town, where the trains no longer stop. They are not looking for love; they are not looking for trouble. They find both. Worlds collide in romance and fear in a play that Arts Desk called “Timely, tender, brutal, and brilliant.”
