Rivals Romp at Seattle Shakespeare

Director George Mount leaves no theatrical stone left unturned in his search for innovative ways to stage his rollicking take on Richard Brinsley Sheridan’s The Rivals. Even before the audience has settled into their seats, on stage, a hurried and hushed discussion takes place between two actors most notably upset. Suddenly they whisk away what appears to be an audience member engrossed in her program while making her way to her seat. She is unceremoniously handed a script and shoved backstage. The show must go on and we all need to do our part! Let the madness begin!
