ArtsWest’s season is almost all Seattle premieres.  Well done!

  • Reasons to be Pretty (Sep-Oct) by Neil LaBute, directed by Katjana Vadeboncoeur.  Katjana directs an all-star lineup in this Seattle premiere.
  • Evil Dead: The Musical (Oct – Nov) by George Reinblatt, directed by Christopher Zinovitch.  Zombies, tons of blood, and songs about zombies and blood.  Really can’t go wrong here.
  • A Tuna Christmas (December) by Jaston Williams, Joe Sears, and Ed Howard; directed by Mary Beth Dagg.
  • Emilie (Jan – Feb 2011) by Lauren Gunderson, directed by Susanna Wilson.  Couldn’t find much info on this play as it’s pretty new, but here’s the description on Lauren’s website: “a sweeping science romantic epic wherein Emilie must defend her life by tallying her achievements in Love and Philosophy—and searching for a formula that will convince the world of her worth.”
  • Distracted (March – Apr 2011) by Lisa Loomer, directed by Christopher Zinovitch.  A comedy about contemporary parenting woes.
  • Shipwrecked! (Apr – May 2011) by Donald Marguiles, directed by Christopher Zinovitch.  The amazing adventures of Louis De Rougemont (as told by himself.)
