Capitol Hill


Summer of Revenge

At 18th and Union Theatre in Capitol Hill, this weekend just on the cusp of summer, Pacific Play Company has debuted their selection of short original plays compiled within an anthology-style production entitled Summer Magic: Tales of Revenge directed by Buddy Todd. Though these twenty plays differ from each other in many ways, as the title suggests, they are ultimately connected by the transient theme of revenge, which explores the many different manifestations and meanings associated with the act.

Cost of Living-Explores multiple meaning of the phrase

Directed by Teresa Thurman, one of Seattle’s most eminent theatres, Sound Theatre Company, has opened Cost of Living, a play with great relevancy to our current epidemic of isolation and loneliness. Taking place in New York City, the title not only refers to what it costs in dollars and cents to live in Manhattan and its boroughs, but also the emotional costs of simply living.


The Standby Lear: Beautiful Rumination on Fear and Opportunity

The Standby Lear, directed by Terry Edward Moore, is a beautiful story of a husband and wife in the acting world, providing opportunity for intense reflection on what living life on standby entails. While starting out as a lighthearted comedy based upon the Shakespearean tragedy, the show quickly transforms into an emotional examination of love and fear in an actor’s life.

Not / Our Town: New or Old Play?

Most people probably know Thornton Wilder’s Our Town, winner of a Pulitzer, a Tony, and a Drama Desk award. With thousands of productions from high school theatre to Broadway, it even has a street in New Hampshire dedicated to it. If you don’t know it, don’t worry, you can still watch Pony World Theatre’s production without a hitch, as it sets up its audience with a summary of the original Our Town before diving into their rendition. Wilder’s play takes place in the small town of New Hampshire, Grover’s Corners, where nothing really happens in the relative peacefulness of the early 1900s. As such, the play is about community and small towns and appreciating even the uneventful in life.
