Every week I update Seattle Performs with reviews from local newspapers and blogs. Don’t forget, Seattle Performs allows user reviews! The more the merrier. Here’s what the reviewers are saying this week:
- Chasing Nicolette (Village Theatre) – The Seattle Weekly says Village “manages to smoothly achieve what so many other performing-arts groups struggle with” by juggling crowd-pleasing, well-known musicals with extremely new works such as these.
- A Confederacy of Dunces (Book-It) – Quite a few reviews for this one! While there are differing opinions regarding the adaptation of the show (some loved it, some felt it went a bit too long) everyone agreed on one thing: Brandon Whitehead is incredible in the lead role, and the rest of the cast is great as well.
- The Importance of Being Earnest (Olympia Little Theatre) – Down south, Alec Clayton praises OLT’s idea of putting this Oscar Wilde classic into the 1960s.
Plenty more reviews of Dead Man’s Cell Phone (ArtsWest), The Creation of the Universe and Other Business (Schmee), Sex in Seattle 17 (SIS), Wicked (STG), and much more in this week’s edition! Check it all out:
