Seattle >Theater Schmeater
Twilight Zone!. I saw one of their late night presentations of classic Twilight Zone episodes. Very, very cool! A small, cozy theater with a great bunch of people. I'm looking forward to seeing one of their prime time shows this year.
No-nonsense Fringe Theater produces upscale plays with downscale budgets..
Who Are They?
Their motto is "Producing Great Plays Simply." Their recent production of "Normal Heart" was very well received and they've made a name for themselves with their popular late night stagings of episodes from "The Twilight Zone." Plus, folks under 18 get in free.
They live up to their motto by presenting plays from the theatrical canon in a surprisingly simple way, with no frills and no gimmicks. This is not the place to go for Shakespeare in the nude or an all-male "Streetcar Named Desire."
They are home to the enigmatic Seattle treasure, Miss Intermission--a local performer who got her start here as intermission entertainment and then branched out with her own show doing her quirky, hysterical take on a dim beauty queen.
Campy Hilarity. I was scared at first because some of the performances are waaaaaaay over the top (well, most, actually) but once I settled into the style, I found myself laughing and giving into the waaaaaay over the top acting and simple-minded plot. The guy who plays Money and the gal who plays Run (or is it the the other waaaaay around) do a GREAT job. Both great, as are several other members of the cast. C+Vwery theatrical and inventive direction - great use of the space and set. Worth and dive night out of theatre.
