Dog days of August still have plenty of theatrical openings

by Miryam Gordon - SGN A&E Writer

There is a lot of theater going on that started performing in July and continues into the dog days of August (parks shows, for instance - Seattle Shakespeare Company/Wooden O and Greenstage) (see my July stage openings column in the SGN, July 3, for listings); there are also workshops, readings and musical festivals that require membership fees to be a part of. But there are still shows opening this month, and they are an eclectic bunch!

Based on the different ethnicities on stage this month, our fair city looks much more cosmopolitan than the demographic studies suggest! There are also musicals and a new play based on a Seattle Gay baseball controversy.

RASHOMON: Reloaded, Recession Era Broke-Ass Theatre (REBATE)nsemble Theatre Group, at South Passage Point Park, 3320 Fuhrman Ave E, 98102, on the south side of University Bridge off Eastlake, August 1-9.
An original theatrical adaptation of Akira Kurosawa's legendary film, Rashomon. Re-imagined in Kabuki style, set in present day, the show is site specific in South Passage Point Park.

Love Song, Porcupine and Poet Productions, Stone Soup Theater, August 1-8.
Oddball Beane gets burgled and his well-meaning sister, Joan, is baffled to find her brother blissfully happy. John Kolvenbach's offbeat comedy is a rhapsody to the power of love in all its forms. (Adult content)

Indian Ink, Sound Theatre Company, Seattle Center Armory, August 13-30.
Tom Stoppard loves to work on more than one level. Here, he introduces a poet travelling through India in the 1930s and her sister in England in the '80s trying to preserve her legacy. The surprising story of two people whose connection lives on through art, Indian Ink is an evocative portrait of love and loss while crossing cultural divides and a quest for divine sensuality. (Contains nudity.)

The Tumbleweed Zephyr, Pork Filled Productions, 12th Avenue Arts, August 14-29.
Two brothers climb aboard the Tumbleweed Zephyr, a transcontinental train headed out of New Providence for the wilds of the Western Territories. But what starts as a simple rail journey takes unexpected turns, with airship bandit raids, twists of fate, wayward romance and the lonely call of a train whistle echoing across a clear desert sky. So grab your satchel and dust off your best traveling hat for this epic new summer adventure!

The Passion As Told by Antigona Perez, Thriving Artists, 12th Avenue Arts, August 14-30.
A new company and a new translation of Puerto Rican playwright Luis Rafael Sanchez brings the Greek classic to modern day. An entirely Hispanic cast transforms into a multitude of new reporters for online news and citizens who tweet and update Facebook. The discrepancy between perception and reality in the era of global information is explored.

The Great American Trailer Park Musical, STAGEright, Richard Hugo House, August 14-29.
This rock and roll country musical explores the relationships between the tenants at the Armadillo Acres Trailer Park in Florida, particularly between Pippi, 'the stripper on the run,' the Dr. Phil-loving agoraphobic Jeannie, and Jeannie's tollbooth-collector husband Norbert.

John Baxter is a Switch Hitter, Intiman Theatre at Cornish Playhouse, August 18-September 27.

Matilda the Musical, National Touring Company at The 5th Avenue Theatre, August 8-September 6.
Winner of four Tony Awards, Matilda the Musical, based on the beloved novel by Roald Dahl, is about Matilda Wormwood, an extraordinarily imaginative and intelligent little girl with spectacularly bad parents. The Wormwoods may be awful, but the headmistress of Matilda's school, Miss Trunchbull, is even worse! Will Matilda find happiness with a real family that values her special qualities? Will her schoolmates escape from the tyranny of Miss Trunchbull?

In James Goldman's scathing drama of strategic manipulation, The Lion in Winter, King Henry II fights with Eleanor of Aquitaine, his estranged wife, about choosing one of his three conniving sons for an heir. Each family member schemes after his or her own agenda.
