Set in the 1950s, the cast and crew of a low budget B Science Fiction movie are trapped on location by a storm on an island off the coast of California. Soon it appears that they are being stalked as a string of unsolved murders thins the ranks. Whodunit? The starlet? The hyper active director? The wizened and cost conscious producer? Or is it the Attack of the Killer Murder…Death!
Ben Brantley of The New York Times calls it "the best musical of this century." Entertainment Weekly says it's "the funniest musical of all time." From South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone, it's The Book of Mormon, winner of nine Tony Awards® including Best Musical. Jon Stewart of The Daily Show calls it "a crowning achievement. So good it makes me angry."
The EDGE Improv presents an ingeniously improvised evening of on-the-spot comedy, all from audience suggestions. For nearly two decades, the troupe's riotous antics have inspired rave reviews.
This barbershop quartet is suddenly a trio scrambling to find a tenor before the national competition. When the golden tones of "Bob" are heard through the phone the Lipitones are all ears … but what's that on his head? An uproarious comedy of misunderstanding, stereotypes and the path to perfect harmony.
Left to clean up a city rampant with corruption, Angelo lays down the law sentencing a young man, Claudio, to death for impregnating his own girlfriend Juliet before marriage. Angelo's particular moral weaknesses surface when Claudio's sister, Isabella, a novice nun, pleads for her brother's life. For Angelo, Isabella's beauty and piety hold an erotic charm and he presents her with a shocking proposition. How far will Isabella go to save her brother's life? Who has true authority to judge another? Shakespeare offers no easy answers in this dark comedy of desires.
Theatre9/12 proudly presents the Northwest premiere of Theresa Rebeck's provocative new comedy Seminar, where writing becomes a contact sport. Produced on Broadway in 2011-12, this fast, funny, biting comedy is "a fevered melange of envy, insecurity and intramural sexual desire." (ChicagoTribune) In a master class four aspiring, fiercely competitive fiction writers, like "feral cats in heat," are led by an aging, international literary figure. This once celebrated novelist's unorthodox instruction confounds and challenges the gobbledygook often disguised as literary genius. Amidst the sometimes vicious repartee in this cauldron of terror, just how much will the frustratingly unsung talents endure from a jaded old pro to realize their publishing dreams.
Orgon's household is under the influence of a seductive swindler named Tartuffe. This cunning con man, masquerading as a holy man, plans to dupe the gullible Orgon out of his fortune, his daughter, and his reputation. The pious grifter can do no wrong in his host's eyes, yet everyone else in the household smells a rat. Just when the jig is up, Tartuffe ups the stakes and the charm. Moliere's laugh-out-loud funny tale of deception, hypocrisy, and power shish-kabobs false morality.
Love lost. Love found. Love turned upside down. Shakespeare's sparkling comedy turns desire on its ear when shipwrecked twins Viola and Sebastian roam Illyria stirring up attraction and distraction wherever they go. Orsino loves Olivia, but she pays him no mind. Olivia loves Viola, whom she's mistaken for a boy. Viola loves Orsino, and he has no idea she's a girl. Toby Belch, Andrew, Feste and Maria love playing pranks on Malvolio who is in love with love (and himself). Strange romance gives way to a miracle in this rollicking comedy of misplaced longing.
